Our Fees

As of the 1st March 2023 Hamilton Health Hub will be a mixed billing practice, with payment at the time of the consultation.

Hamilton Health Hub is a privately owned and operated practice. There are many costs, including staff wages and medical equipment. Unfortunately, the cost of operating all business has increased as much as 10% in the last 12 months, and costs to medical practices are no different. In fact, medical equipment costs increase at more than twice the rate of inflation every year. Despite the increase in costs, which are being felt by everyone, the government has not increased the Medicare rebate enough to support your ongoing healthcare.

In reality, Medicare rebates have barely increased in the last 10 years. As a result, the current funding for General Practice is less than half of what it should be if it had kept up with real world costs.

As a results in order to continue to provide the best care possible an out-of-pocket fee will apply to your consultation going forward, if you have any concerns or queries, please email admin@hamiltonhealthhub.com.au or call 3558 0818.

At the doctors' discretion, patients who have a health care card, pensioners concession card, children less than 12 years old and seniors greater than 75 years old may be bulk billed for standard consultations only.  Short, long or prolonged consultation will never be bulk billed.

Where procedures are involved, there are additional costs, which your doctor will discuss with you at the time of consultation.  A follow-up appointment will most likely be bulk-billed if the appointment is exclusively for a review of the previous appointment like discussing your investigation results etc. 

Bulk billing is not guaranteed and is available only at the doctor’s discretion. We are able to offer Medicare online for automatic claiming.

Please be aware that we do not bulk bill any seniors, children or concession card holders on Sundays and on public holidays.  

Patients wishing to have visits charged to a third party must provide evidence of claim acceptance or a contact person who can verify the claim.  i.e. TAC or Work Cover claim number, a letter from your employer, or contact details.

Patients who are referred to other providers such as x-ray or pathology are advised that additional fees may apply. Enquiries should be made with the relevant provider to establish what is covered under Medicare or private health insurance.
