Gap payment letter April 2020

PATIENT FEES AS OF 1ST APRIL 2020

For many years now we at GPaxis have been able to provide a bulk billing service to all of our patients. Unfortunately, due to the 30% cut to the Medicare bulk billing incentive recently we are no longer able to provide this service.

From the 1st April 2020 GPaxis will be introducing a $20 gap for a standard consult and $30 gap for an extended consult 

  • We will continue to bulk bill all patients 15 and under, or on a concession/healthcare card.¬†
  • We will continue to bulk bill Mental Health Care Plans, Recalls for test results, Chronic Disease Management Plans & Health Assessments

You will be required to pay the account in full at the time of the consult. Your medicare rebate will be reimbursed into your bank account within 1-2 days.
