Other patients may be bulk-billed at the doctor’s discretion, otherwise a consult fee will need to be paid prior to leaving the Practice. The TYRO units can process the Medicare Rebate on the day so long as you have an eFTPOS card or Visa/MasterCard Debit card or the claim can be sent electronically which is usual processed within 24 – 48 hours.
What About Specialist Services?
Medicare offers a higher rebate – with valid GP referral
Medicare Rebates are higher when seeing a Specialist. While the initial cost may seem expensive to start the higher rebates for specialist doctors from Medicare reduces the out of pocket expense to a level in the affordable range.
