Medical Centre Acacia Ridge
Mixed Billing Doctors Acacia Ridge
We would like to advise that Acacia Ridge Family Practice and Algester Medical Centre are now mixed billing.
Unfortunately, rising costs of staff wages, medical supplies, insurances and utilities, coupled with the fact that the Government has only increased the standard consultation fee by $4 over the last 9 years, it is financially no longer possible to continue to provide high quality medical service whilst bulk billing all of our patients.
You may incur and out-of-pocket, except for the following patient groups who will continue to be bulk billed:
- Children under 16 years of age
- DVA Card Holders
- Patients over 65 years of age
- Care plans, health assessments
- Government-funded immunisations
Concession card holders will still incur a fee, although the out of pocket amount will be lower.
We have kept the fee as low as possible and patients will be required to pay for their consultation, in full on the day of their appointment. Your Medicare rebate will be processed during payment and will be back in your account within 24 hours.
All telehealth appointments, and appointments after 6pm and ALL weekend appointments will attract an out of pocket fee, please speak to one of our receptionists when you book your appointment.
Acacia Ridge Family Practice is committed to excellence in healthcare and we recognise this is a lifelong process. That is why we strive to promote health, well-being and disease prevention in all patients. Some of our many services include health assessments, work cover, skin or mole checks and general healthcare services. If you’re a new patient, you may have found us through a recommendation, by seeing our signage or from an online search for terms like, ‘Acacia Ridge Medical Centre’, ‘Acacia Ridge Doctors’, ‘Doctors Acacia Ridge’, ‘Medical Centre Acacia Ridge’ or ‘Mixed Billing Doctors Acacia Ridge’. Regardless of how you’ve discovered our practice, we’re delighted to welcome you.
We aim to offer convenience as well as excellence in terms of our service. For this reason, we have made access to pathology and x-ray facilities easy. We have onsite QML pathology from 8:00am to 4:00pm, Monday to Friday.
