Westcare Medical Centre Thornlie - Mixed Billing Practice
As of 1st July 2022, Westcare Medical Centre Thornlie will be transitioning to a mixed billing practice. The reality is that Medicare rebates do not cover the cost of providing you with a high-quality professional service. The fees charged by this practice must cover all of our practice costs including employing receptionists and practice nurses and meeting our operating expenses such as rent, medical equipment, electricity, computers and insurance. We are committed to providing the very best quality healthcare for our patients and pride ourselves in our commitment to deliver you this.
We continue to bulk bill the following:
– 12 and under
– Pension Card Holders / DVA
– Over 65 Years
– Health Care Cards / Concession Card Holders
- Influenza Vaccine $20.00
Westcare Medical Centre Thornlie is encouraging our patients to have either a telehealth or video consultation going forward.
We understand that this may be confronting for some people, however, in the interests of the health and safety of patients and staff during this time it is a necessary measure.
