Mixed Billing Doctors Algester
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.
At Algester Medical Centre you are guaranteed targeted and personalised healthcare. We strive to make our services as convenient and accessible as possible. As a part of this, we are open every day of the week. We also have both male and female doctors available.
