We offer bulk billing services to aged pension card holders 65 years and older, Veteran Affairs patients & children under 16 years old, with a valid Medicare card. However, the first 2 standard consults for the year will be privately billed for aged pensioners and one standard consult will be privately billed for children under 16 for the year.
