BLACKBURN SPECIALIST CENTRE
Specialists and Allied health practitioners set their own fees. In some cases our staff can provide information about these fees, but sometimes we will direct you to the main rooms of the health practitioner for this information.
GENERAL PRACTITIONERS AT BLACKBURN SPECIALIST CENTRE
We are a high quality private billing clinic (there will be an out of pocket expense).
A.M.A. recommended rates apply to consultations. Full payment is expected at the time of the visit. Credit cards and EFTPOS facilities are available. Pensioners, Health Care Card holders, children and full time students under 21 will be charged a substantially discounted fee, which will leave a small out of pocket gap if the account is settled at the time of the visit. Veterans’ Affairs card-holders are bulk-billed at all times.
FACE TO FACE CONSULTATIONS:
|FEE If paid on day||M/C Rebate||Gap (out of pocket)|
|Concession Standard Consultation||$59.85||$38.75||$21.10|
|Concession Long Consultation||$96.15||$75.05||$21.10|
After Hours fees: our normal consulting times are 8.00am – 6.00pm Monday to Friday, and appointments booked outside these hours will be charged at our After Hours rates, which result in a larger out of pocket gap.

There will be an out of pocket gap (after the Medicare rebate) of $30 (or $15 for Concession patients). These gaps are lower than for face-to-face appointments.
Patients without respiratory symptoms may phone the clinic to book face-to-face appointments.
Missed Appointment fee: A fee will be charged for patients who miss their appointment, and do not cancel with at least one hours’ notice.
Procedures performed in our well-equipped theatre will incur an extra charge. Concession patients will be charged a reduced fee, which will leave a gap.
