Yes. However, these are kept to a minimum due to the nature of the practice, time constraints and safety reasons. Mainly for regular patients whose condition prevents them attending the practice. Visits will only be made within the Blackbutt-Benarkin community.

No. Telephone requests for prescriptions will not be accepted at this practice for legal reasons and the safety of your health. Telephone consults with a GP are still available to patients who have visited the practice in the last 6 months. Scripts can still be faxed or emailed to your preferred pharmacy but originals must be posted later.

Blackbutt Medical Centre has been a mixed billing medical practice since February 2020. If your GP hasn’t bulk billed you, full payment of the consultation fee needs to be paid on that day. The gap between your Medicare rebate and the consultation charge is the out-of-pocket amount.

New patients and visitors are welcome, however all first visits are privately billed. With on-thespot processing, the Medicare rebate goes into your bank account right away. Fees will be payable at the time of consultation by cash, credit card or EFTPOS. Accounts are unfortunately not able be given. The AMA fee structure forms the basis of our billing policy, and our doctors charge the fees that reflect the time taken and degree of complexity in each consultation. Our practice is equipped with TYRO and Medicare On-Line. These facilities allow the surgery to directly lodge your receipt for Medicare refunds, saving time for patients.

Please ask our reception members for any information regarding these rebate options, as well as private fees. In today’s environment, it’s no longer possible to bulk bill every patient. All consultations are time-based and attract a fee. We have given a great deal of consideration to who is eligible to be bulk billed.

Blackbutt Medical Centre pride ourselves on delivering the best quality, sustainable community health care. Bulk billing is available for people who have a valid Medicare card and are:

Pension Card Holders
Health Care Card Holders
DVA Card Holders
Children under 16 years
Students under 25 years with a Student card
Undertaking a Mental Health Care plan
Undertaking a Chronic Disease Management Plan or Team Care Plan
Undertaking a Home medicines Review appointment.
75+ Annual Health Check

If your card has expired, we aren’t able to bulk bill you. If your newborn does not have a card yet, we aren’t able to bulk bill them. If our patients need to access quality health care but can’t afford it, we will, of course, bulk bill them. (At the discretion of your GP)

Blackbutt Medical Centre pride ourselves on delivering the best quality, sustainable community medical and health care.
