RICHLANDS MEDICAL CENTRE

WILL BE MIXED BILLING FROM 01/09/2022

 

 

 

 

As of the 1st September 2022, Richlands Medical Centre will be moving to mixed billing. This means that we will be charging a fee on top of Medicare for consultations, both face to face and telehealth. Patients under 16 years old and patients over 16 years old with a Health Care Card and/or Pension card will be bulk billed.

 

Dr Angela Bowman and Dr Leo Schneider-Fensky's patients who are over 16 and without a Health Care/Pension Card will no longer be bulk billed. All of Dr Angela Bowman and Dr Leo Schneider-Fensky's patients booked on Saturdays will be privately billed.

 

Dr Edward Kwok, Dr Loreta Blanco and Dr Farron Young may continue to Bulk Bill their regular patients.

 

For further billing enquiries, please discuss with your GP at your next visit.
