We offer a wide range of services for all members of the community. Some of our services are subsidised and may have eligibility requirements.

Find out about your eligibility for the subsidised options we offer:
- For non-subsidised services, if you have private health insurance you can often claim your rebates at the time of your visit.
- For our doctor services, we provide bulk billing to a range of patients and clients. We offer bulk billing from Monday to Friday.
We set the costs of our services based on income ranges. These income ranges are based on the Centrelink Income Test for pensioners. See our current income tables.
Our Billing Policy Explained
At AccessHC, 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.
On the other hand, we are very aware that there may be times in life when health and expenses become a challenge. It’s important that people are still able to access quality health care at these times, and so we offer bulk-billing in some circumstances.
Bulk billing is available for people who have a Medicare card and have are:
- Health Care Card Holders
- Pension Card Holders
- DVA Card Holders
- Children under 16 years
- Students under 25 years with a Student IC card
- NDIS clients
Please note bulk billing is only available with presentation of a valid card as mentioned above, we cannot bulk bill you if your card has expired.
Private consults are charged for all other patients. The ‘GAP’ is the amount you end up paying after you have received your Medicare rebate.
- Standard weekday consultation up to 15 minutes = $67.05 ($30 gap)
- Standard consultation Saturdays before 1pm = $67.05 ($30 gap)
- Double weekday consultation of 30 minutes = $101.70 ($30 gap)
- Double consultation after 1pm, or Saturdays = $113.95 (30 gap)
Other fees vary according to the service provided.
Missed Appointments & Medicare ‘GAP’
Please be mindful that all patients who miss their appointment are charged a missed appointment fee $37.05 (GST. Inclusive) which is not claimable through Medicare.
