Fees

Como GP is a private billing practice.  Consultation fees for each type of appointment are outlined below.  Fees are payable at the time of consultation by either cash, EFTPOS, Visa or Mastercard.  This practice generally does not bulk bill.  Patients holding full pensioner card or healthcare card are offered discount rates of $15 on all fees for weekday appointments before 5pm.  All children less than the age of 12 are bulk billed on weekdays for appointments before 5pm.  Individual doctors reserve the right to charge a reduced fee or bulk bill at their discretion.  

All patients will be bulk billed and have free consults for ear wax removal using microscope with microsuction, health assessments, chronic disease care plans and review of these care plans.
