Billing Information

 

 

 

Bulk Billing

We care about our community’s health and well-being and believe uncompromised healthcare should be available to all Patients through the Medicare Benefits Schedule. Cooloola Coast General Practice is a Bulk Billing Practice and all of our Doctors Bulk Bill to Patients with a current Medicare Card on all MBS items.

Some services/procedures may attract a charge; a comprehensive list of fees is available from our Admin team upon request.

Patients who do not hold a current Medicare Card will be billed as a Private Patient.

A list of our most common Private Billing/Additional Fees are as follows:
