I rang to enquire on the cost of a consultation and I was given a price range by the receptionist. Why is there not a set fee for consultation?
The consultation fee is determined by a number of factors, based on Medicare guidelines, such as what you discuss during the consultation and how long you spend with the doctor. Although the upfront fee varies on the day, the out of pocket fee remains the same. With our Medicare terminal in the clinic we can process your rebate straight away for you.
