Methods of Payment

The reception team can assist you by submitting Medicare refund claims online. Your Medicare rebate will be reimbursed to your bank account within 48 hours if you provide your bank account details at the time of payment. This practice accepts payment by cash, EFTPOS, credit card or cheque. Payment by credit card over the telephone is also accepted and our team will happily post receipt of this transaction.

When booking Telehealth appointments via HotDoc, you will be prompted to provide your credit card details.  These details are securely stored within the HotDoc system and no payment will be allocated to your card until completion of your appointment with your doctor.

All personal information provided is strictly confidential and governed by privacy laws. Gap payments for general practitioner (GP), specialist, radiology and pathology services can be counted towards the Medicare Safety Net.

Understanding your Medicare Safety Net

As a Medicare Card holder, you are automatically enrolled in the Original Medicare Safety Net (OMSN) program. Once your out-of-hospital (GP and specialist consultations, radiology and pathology) total gap payments reach a certain threshold, you will receive 100% of the Schedule Fee for out-of-hospital services for the rest of the calendar year.

As a Medicare Card holder, you are also eligible for the Extended Medicare Safety Net (EMSN). The EMSN has two thresholds: General and Concessional/Family Tax Benefit Part A. When you reach the General Threshold, your benefit will apply to out -of-hospital medical services and this will apply for the rest of the calendar year.

You’ll receive 100% of the Medicare Schedule Fee and the lowest of the following:

  • 80% of the out of pocket amount.
  • Extended Medicare Safety Net benefit caps.

If you’re part of a registered family, you’ll need to confirm your family members before Medicare will pay you the higher Extended Medicare Safety Net benefit.
