Fees and Payment
Kew General Practice is a private billing practice. A reduced fee is offered for full pension card holders. Repatriation/Veterans’ affairs patients are bulk billed at all times.
Childhood, influenza, and pneumonia immunisations can be given by our nursing staff with no out-of-pocket cost (although there may be a charge for the vaccines if you are not covered by the government immunisation schedules).
Fees are payable by cash, credit or EFTPOS. The Medicare rebate can be paid directly into your bank account.
Payment is requested at the time of consultation, otherwise an administration fee of $5.00 will apply. If you take an account we request payment within 14 days. A cancellation fee, equivalent to the fee for the relevant consultation, applies if 24 hours’ notice is not given for cancellation for an appointment.

Our doctors do their best to run on time for appointments but sometimes unexpected issues come up. You can do your bit to help by booking a long appointment if you have an issue that is complex or may take more time, or have three or more simple issues that you wish to discuss with the doctor.
** Please note that different fees will apply for other services such as care planning and procedures. A full list of fees is available at reception.
