From July 1st 2022 the government has altered the Medicare rebates for optometric services. As a result we have restructured our billing procedures to reflect these. These are outlined below:
Charge Rebate* Out of Pocket
New & returning Adult Patients (1hr) $ 94.00 $ 62.15 $ 31.85
New Kids/BV (age 3-14) $104.00 $93.30 $10.70
New/current Pensioners $ 84.00 $ 62.15 $ 21.85
Kids/Students $ 74.00 $ 62.15 $ 11.85
Review/Non-comprehensive initial Consultations:
Adult $42.00 $ 31.15 $ 10.85
Digital retinal photography if required/requested will now cost $20.00 and is currently non-rebatable.
We offer Bulk Billing consultations for Pensioners and Health Care Card holders on Tuesday afternoons and Thursday mornings (half hour appointments). If more time is required for a comprehensive examination, a review appointment will need to be re-booked.
Rebates are done on the day through Medicare Online Claiming where rebates go directly into your nominated bank account.
*The full rebate may not apply based on eligibility, if you are concerned, please ask a staff member to explain this.
