Non-Attendance Fees

We want to help as many people as we can. Please advise us as soon as possible of any change to your booking so that someone else can make use of your time slot.

To avoid a non-attendance fee, please give no less than 4 hours notice for any cancellation or change of booking to a Standard, Long or New Patient Consultation. For Extended Consultations or Therapy Session appointments, patients must provide us with 24 hours notice for any cancellation or change of booking to avoid a non-attendance fee.

For telehealth and telephone consultations, if you are not in the online waiting room and do not answer your phone, it will be considered a non-attendance. You will need to reschedule and may be charged a non-attendance fee. Please ensure you are either in the waiting room or ready to accept the phone call.

The non-attendance fee is 50% +GST of the full consultation fee.

Payment

Our centre operates cashless, accepting same-day payment via EFTPOS, Visa, and MasterCard.

We offer instant Medicare rebate processing on site. To be eligible, please ensure your bank details are registered with Medicare.

Extended Medicare Safety Net

The EMSN provides an increased rebate for Australian families and singles who incur out-of-pocket costs for Medicare-eligible out-of-hospital services. Once the relevant annual threshold of out-of-pocket costs has been met, Medicare will pay up to 80 percent of any future out-of-pocket costs for out-of-hospital Medicare services for the remainder of the calendar year. However, there is an upper limit on the amount of benefit that can be paid under the EMSN for a small number of Medicare services.

There are two thresholds for the EMSN. These thresholds are indexed by the CPI on 1 January each year. From 1 January 2020 the annual EMSN thresholds are:

  • $692.20 for Commonwealth concession cardholders, including those with a Pensioner Concession Card, a Health Care Card or a Commonwealth Seniors Card, and people who receive Family Tax Benefit (Part A);
  • and $2,169.20 for all other singles and families.
    Couples and families should contact the Department of Human Services – Medicare to register their family members as part of a safety net eligible family. Registering as a family allows eligible out-of-pocket costs for each individual family member to count towards the family’s EMSN threshold. Couples and families need to register even if all family members are listed on the Medicare card. Registration is only required once, unless family members change, for example, if a student child is no longer studying full time or you have a newborn baby.
