Montrose Medical Practice is a private billing practice. Our practice is equipped with Medicare Easyclaim which gives you the choice of having your Medicare claiming done on the spot with Medicare rebate deposited into your bank account using an EFTPOS card. Discounted fee applies to pension card holders, health care cardholders and full-time students. Children under the age of 16 who hold a valid Medicare card are bulk billed except on the weekend.
- How can I get my rebate?
We are happy to assist you in providing your Medicare rebate on the spot after your appointment via Medicare Easyclaim. After paying the full fee, you have the option of using a Debit card to receive the rebate immediately, or we can send the rebate to the bank account held by Medicare.
- I don’t have Medicare. Can I still see a GP or allied health professional?
Yes. We welcome all patients to Montrose Medical Practice. If you do not have a Medicare card, you will be charged our private fees (link). We can provide you with a tax invoice so that you have the option of claiming through any insurance you might have after your consultation.
- Are there private health rebates available on site?
We are unable to offer private health rebates for GP consultations. However, we can provide private health rebates through our HICAPS machine to eligible patients who are accessing our allied health services (podiatry and clinical psychology). You will need to confirm whether you are eligible for a rebate for these services with your private health insurer.
- My child doesn’t have Medicare yet. What do I do?
Unfortunately, we are unable to Bulk Bill children who do not yet have a Medicare card so there will be a small fee to pay after your child visits the doctor. We will provide you with the tax invoice for this visit and, once your child has a Medicare card, you can use this to claim your rebate. For a full breakdown of our fees for babies without Medicare, please refer to chart below.
