Sinamed Family Practice is a Bulk Billing Medical Centre. This means anyone who is a Medicare Card Holder is able to receive their appointment with no out-of-pocket expenses. If you do not have a Medicare card there will, unfortunately, be private billing.
Our Minor Procedures listed here are also Medicare rebatable, except for Iron Infusion which is $100.00 and will require payment on the day. Some basic pricing is provided here, however, our reception staff will inform you of any fees that are not listed.
We believe that quality medical care should be accessible for everyone, so we strive to maintain a no-gap service where possible!
OUR PRIVATE BILLING FEES
Non-Medicare Card Holders
For Medicare Card Holders – All of the above are available for Bulk Billing except Iron Infusion
Please ensure that you inform our reception at least 2 hours before your scheduled appointment if:
- you no longer need your appointment
- cannot attend your allotted time
If you cancel at least 2 hours before your appointment, we do not charge a cancellation fee.
DID NOT ATTEND POLICY
Effective 28th September 2023
A DNA occurs when a patient Does Not Attend a scheduled appointment without prior notice of cancellation.
Sinamed Family Practice has introduced this policy as our doctors are often fully booked at the commencement of a day and many people need to see their doctor urgently these people ask to be put on a waiting list in case an appointment becomes available earlier than their scheduled appointment.
DNA POLICY CANCELLATION FEES
PLEASE CANCEL YOUR APPOINTMENT BY PHONING RECEPTION AT LEAST 2 HOURS PRIOR TO YOUR APPOINTMENT TO AVOID INCURRING ANY FEES.
Standard Appointment – $40 fee for DNA or under 2 hours notice to cancel
Long Appointment or Procedure – $80 fee for DNA or under 2 hours notice to cancel
If you incur a cancellation fee, this must be paid for before another appointment is booked. All age groups are subject to receive a cancellation fee for DNA’s.
Whilst not encouraged, our practice allows patients an opportunity to obtain advice or information related to their care by electronic means, but only where the general practitioner determines that a face-to-face consultation is unnecessary and that communication by electronic means is suitable. Our practice will only provide information that is of a general, non-urgent nature and will not initiate electronic communication (other than SMS appointment reminders) with patients. Any electronic communication received from patients is also used as a method to verify the contact details we have recorded on file are correct and up-to-date.
Communication with patients via electronic means is conducted with appropriate regard to privacy. Patient’s consent must be obtained and documented before any communication will be sent and patient’s will need to acknowledge the risks associated with electronic communication in that the information could be intercepted or read by someone other than the intended recipient.
