On Jan 1, 2020, the Australian Government reduced the bulk billing incentive for GP consultations in Geelong by a whopping 33.7%. This unfortunately makes bulk billing unsustainable for a small family practice like ours, where we value the importance of spending time with our patients during consultations and procedures.
Additionally, we want to pay our staff a fair wage for the excellent work they do. Universal bulk billing makes this impossible.
To remain accessible to all our patients, we offer reduced fees to concession card holders. We will continue bulk billing children 12 years and under, and appointments for chronic disease management planning and health assessments.
Please refer to our fee schedule for further details.
We acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the land on which Family Doctors Highton stands, the Wadawurrung people of the Kulin nation . We pay our respects to their Elders past, present and emerging and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples today.
