We are a private specialist medical practice and in most cases the out-of-pocket charge (after Medicare rebate) for an initial non-urgent appointment is around $200.
The out-of-pocket cost for attending an initial appointment at the Rapid Review Clinic is approximately $100.
The charge for subsequent appointments varies depending on the complexity of the problem, how long review appointments take, frequency of review required etc. Please call to discuss any questions you have in relation to fees prior to your child’s appointment.
You will be requested to pay the full amount on the day by credit card, EFTPOS or cash and your Medicare rebate will be put straight back into your account using EFTPOS, or directly deposited into your nominated bank account within 3 business days.
We aim to keep our fees as low as possible but can only do so by making sure that every patient attends their booked appointment. We will make every effort to remind you of upcoming appointments by SMS and/or e-mail but if you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment, please let us know as soon as possible.
Unfortunately we will need to charge you a $50 non-attendance fee if you don’t let us know you are unable to attend a booked appointment by 8:30am on the day of your appointment.
