Patient Charges

  • GeelongHEART is a private practice, and charges above the Medicare Schedule Fee.  However, we charge significantly below the Australian Medical Association Fee, which takes into account movements in wages and practice running costs.

  •  A discount is offered for Pensioners and Health Care Card holders.  Please notify the Receptionist if this applies to you.

  • There is no requirement to have any Health Insurance to be seen at this Practice.

  • Payment is expected on the day of the consultation, by eftpos or credit card.  Please notify the Receptionist if you need to make alternative arrangements.

  • If your bank details are registered with Medicare, the rebate amount will be automatically deposited into your bank account.

  •  Up to 100% of out-of-pocket expenses for Consultations will be refunded by Medicare if you have reached the Safety Net in any given financial year.  Click here for more information.

  •  If you expect to have any difficulty with payment, please discuss this with your referring Doctor or with the cardiologist during the consultation.
