Important Changes to our Billing Policy

Effective September 1st, 2022

Gladstone Park Medical Clinic wish to advise that we have made the decision that from the 1st of September we will become primarily a Private Billing Clinic.

We have had to make this difficult decision due to increase in the basic costs that are required to run a Medical Centre.

We continue to be committed to maintaining our quality of care, and these changes will allow us to continue this into the future. You may already be aware that many of the clinics in this area have changed to either private billing or mixed billing.

Fees are payable at the time of consultation. Accounts unfortunately are not able to be given.

The doctors charge fees that reflect the time taken and degree of complexity in each consultation. Fees are to be paid for in the full amount at the end of your consultation. Our practice is equipped with TYRO and Medicare on-line. These facilities allow the clinic to directly lodge your receipt for Medicare refunds, saving time for patients. Please ask the reception members for any information regarding rebate options.

We have also re-introduced a non-attendance fee of $50 for missed appointments.

To avoid this fee all cancellation must occur at least 4hrs prior to your appointment.
We thank you for understanding why it has been necessary to make these changes and for your continued support.

Maria Blasis,
Business Development Manager/Practice Manager.
