Fees and Payments:

Woodville Family Medical is a mixed-billing practice.

Bulk Billing is available for Pensioners, Health Care Card holders, children under 16 and Veterans’ Affairs card holders.

 

Medicare cards and concession cards must be presented when requested.

Making Payments

Payment is required on the day of the consultation and can be made by cash, EFTPOS or Credit Card (excluding American Express and Diners cards).

All workers compensation and motor vehicle accident patients are required to pay their accounts at the time of consultation until a letter of acceptance is produced from their insurance company.

Appointments:

Appointments are usually booked at 15 minute intervals.

 

When making your appointment, please advise the receptionist if you feel that you require a longer appointment so that an appropriate consultation time can be arranged. Longer consultations are also available should you require them for specific treatments/procedures. Please advise reception if you believe you require an urgent appointment.

 

Failure to notify cancellation of an appointment, with less than 24 hours' notice, will result in a fee being charged.

 

All new patients are requested to phone the surgery to make appointments

At times you may experience a waiting period due to GPs attending to urgent or complex medical issues. We apologise for any inconvenience and appreciate your understanding.
