Fees

The overriding goal of Eaton Medical Centre & Skin Clinic and Australind Medical Centre & Skin Clinic is to provide accessible high-quality primary healthcare to the Eaton, Australind and surrounding communities.  This is something we have been doing since 1992.  Over this time we have discovered that the only way to ensure both quality and accessibility in the care we provide is to be a “Mixed Billing” practice.  This means that while we charge private fees, we do bulk bill some patients (criteria applies, see billing policy).  Our private fees are based on the schedule determined by the Australian Medical Association.  Our basic consultation fees are below. Our reception staff on request can provide information on fees for other items and procedures.

Item Fee Medicare Rebate Patient Gap
Short consultation (less than 5 min) $49 $17.20 $31.80
Standard consultation (5 min to less than 20 min) $81 $37.60 $43.40
Long consultation (20 min to less than 40 min) $140 $72.80 $67.20
Extended consultation (40 min and over) $170 $107.15 $62.85
