Education, Prevention & Early Detection are the keys to reducing your risks of skin cancer.
Due to the circumstances beyond our control, we are writing to inform you, and all of our Patients, of the now necessary billing policies decided by the Doctors of Keperra Family Practice.
Due to the 20 years stagnation of your Medicare rebates and the ever increasing costs of providing good medical care, we are now necessarily having to align our fees with AMA (Australian Medical Association) recommended fees.
We are unable to continue to offer bulk billing to our patients apart from those 15 years of age and under and patients on an aged care pension.
As doctors we will continue to offer a discounted rate for full time students under 25 years old and all Commonwealth concession card holders under 65 years old.
DVA patients will continue to be bulk billed.
Please check our Fees section on the website for more information on fees from 04.07.2022.
We do remind our patients however, that once a Medicare safety net has been reached, you are eligible to a significantly higher rebate to help with the cost of general practice and all other types of care.
If you feel that you are an exceptional case of genuine need, speak with your doctor at the time of your visit.
If you are as concerned as we are about the shortfall of healthcare rebates, please let the Health Minister know by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org or your local Members:
