****PLEASE NOTE****

From Monday 30th March Family Doctors Plus will be providing GP and physiotherapy telephone consultations as well as in-clinic/face to face consultations to our patients. Our psychologists and dietitian also offer telephone consultations. The experience of health systems overseas is that waiting rooms can contribute significantly to the spread of COVID 19 and we have taken extra precautions to keep our waiting rooms safe. We have a responsibility to protect you, our loyal patients, and our practice staff from the spread of this virus. We feel the safest way to do this is by trying to do as much as possible over the telephone.

We understand the importance of essential services such as facilitating of annual influenza vaccines, childhood immunisations, antenatal care and wound dressings and will continue to provide these. We request all other patients have a phone appointments during this difficult time (if appropriate). Your GP can do mental health care, chronic disease and eating disorder plans and reviews over the phone.

These are extraordinary times and require extraordinary measures. Our doctors, allied health and staff are committed to caring for you through this uncertain period. We ask for your patience and understanding as we do what we feel is the right thing for our community based on the latest information and Qld Health Guidelines. We review this daily and will let you know if there are any changes.

Consultation Fee Schedules

 

Telephone Consultation fees:

Bulk billed/no out of pocket cost for: Children under 16 years of age, Commonwealth concession card holders, and patients who are more vulnerable to COVID-19 (Medicare card holders only, criteria as per the Australian Government Department of Health MBS guidelines, 6th April 2020). This criteria changes frequently and the Family Doctors Plus team do their best to keep up with the latest. Please speak with your doctor if you have any queries about your eligibility.

The fees for patients who do not fit into the above criteria are the same as per in clinic consultations. These attract the same Medicare rebates and out of pocket costs as well. If you have any concerns about the amount of the Medicare rebate we request you speak with Health Minister Greg Hunt.
