Fees

As of 1st January 2022, Jupiter Health Spearwood will be transitioning to a mix billing practice. As a practice we believe that everyone deserves to have access to high quality healthcare and so we were offering our services as a bulk billing clinic. Unfortunately, the rebate we receive from Medicare does not cover the operational costs of the practice. We are committed to maintaining and providing the very best quality healthcare for our patients and so we have taken this step to protect the sustainability of our practice.

Weekday Consultation Fees
Standard: Consultation fee $75.00 /Medicare refund to patient $39.10 /Out of pocket cost to patient $35.90
Long: Consultation fee $125.00 /Medicare refund to patient $75.75 /Out of pocket cost to patient $49.25

Access to healthcare is very important to us. Therefore, we will continue to bulk bill the following patients;
  • Children under 16
  • Pension card holders/DVA
  • Chronic Disease care plans
  • Health assessments
  • Mental Health Care Plans

Weekend and public holidays
Consultations on the weekends and Public Holidays will incur a $15 surcharge to the prices listed above. Medicare rebates vary on weekends, please see below the consult fees.

DID NOT ATTEND (DNA) AND CANCELLATION POLICY
DDue to the high demand for bulk billing appointments and the high number of non-attendances and cancellations for GP appointments, we will charge a fee of $40 per single consultation or for double consult a fee of $80 for any appointment that is not attended or not cancelled within 4 hours of the appointment time.

IIf this account is not paid, a letter of suspension of services and the outstanding account will be issued. This letter will see your access to all services suspended until accounts are paid. There may also be the possibility of permanent suspension from the practice at the doctor’s discretion for repeat offenders.

We have many wasted appointments every day and by introducing this policy we hope patients will consider cancelling their appointments so that others may access them if required.

If you have any concerns, please speak with our reception staff.
