At Parkhill Medical Centre, we pride ourselves on providing the highest possible standard of health care to our community.
To achieve this in today's environment, it's not possible to bulk-bill everyone. That's why we charge a consultation fee in most cases.
Medicare provides you with a rebate for consultations with GP. Unfortunately, the costs of keeping our clinic running cannot be sustained by the rebate being offered by Medicare. Bulk-billing services will apply to Pensioners who holds a valid AGE or DSP Concession Card, DVA and children under 15 years old between 9am-5pm on weekdays with a booked appointment from Outside these hours, private billing applies. Dr Moe bulk-bills all Medicare Card Holders except Saturdays.
For standard PHONE Consultations, a $35 gap fee applies after your Medicare Rebate; and due to Medicare changes, PHONE Consultations for Mental Health Care Plans and GP Care Plans are no longer available. Please book a face to face appointment for these services.
Covid-19 vaccines (Astra Zeneca and Pfizer) and Flu Vaccine appointments will be bulk-billed. Covid-19 vaccinations are available to book online or call reception.
As we are now able to offer Medicare-subsidized Phone Consults, our repeat prescription service is temporarily suspended.
If you are an existing patient needing a repeat prescription, a "Repeat Prescription Only - Phone Consult" Your out of pocket fee will be $10 if you have a Medicare card ( provided that your consult is only for the repeat prescription and not for any additional reasons). You can book online or by calling us.
We can now send your scripts electronically via SMS or email. Alternatively, you can drop into the clinic after your appointment to collect your script.
You can also book a Face-to-Face Consult (subject to current COVID-19 restrictions) with one of our other GPs and our normal fees will apply.
