Practice Fees

Chermside Family Medical Centre is a private billing practice and a fee is payable for consultations if you are aged over 16 years of age and below 75 years of age.   Bulk billing is available for children under the age of 16 years and patients over 75 years of age, or Veteran’s with a gold card.  Pensioners and Health Care Card holders will be charged a discounted rate.  There may be variation in fees between doctors based upon content, time and frequency of consultations.

 

The Reception staff can provide patients with a full list of our consultation fees, or they can be found on the front reception desk or on this website.

We have endeavored to keep fees affordable to ensure all patients have access to essential healthcare.
