Fees And Rebates

behavioural paediatrician near me

Please be aware that West Gippsland Paediatric Group Warragul is a private billing practice. Payment for services will be required in full on the day of an appointment, with Medicare rebates claimable afterwards.

We have facilities for EFTPOS, credit card and cash payments as well as cheques. We can also provide banking details for direct deposit payment if necessary. We do have facilities for Medicare claims to be made at the time of your consultation.

Be advised Medicare rebates are subject to change in July every year. If you have registered for and have reached the Medicare Safety Net, you will be able to claim a greater rebate on your consultation fee.

Please be aware that private health funds generally do not offer rebates for outpatient medical appointments.

All appointments must be made with a valid referral from a medical practitioner. General Practitioner referrals are valid for a period of 12 months after which time a new referral will be required if you have ongoing appointments.

 Visit here for more information on the referrals process.

If there are any queries with this information please do not hesitate to contact our reception staff
There is a high referral rate to this clinic resulting in pressure for appointments. Timely notice for cancellation would be appreciated so another person can have the appointment.
Failure to notify us of cancelling at least 24 hours prior to the appointment will incur a $50 non-rebatable fee.

Yellow Patient Information Sheet, Green Patient Consent Form and referral needs to be sent to us BEFORE your appointment.
