Our Fees

The Paediatric Clinic is a private specialist clinic. Our fees are aligned with the AMA recommended rates for specialist consultations and are set at the discretion of your treating clinician.

We require full payment on the day of consultation. We accept EFTPOS, Mastercard and Visa.

After you have paid the full fee for your appointment, we will lodge a claim on your behalf with Medicare Online (providing you have a valid referral for the appointment and your child is registered with Medicare). Families should ensure they have provided bank details to Medicare, so the rebate can be paid into their nominated account, usually on the next business day. If your family has exceeded the Medicare Safety Net threshold for the year your gap payment will be reduced.

Please contact our reception team if you wish to enquire about fees and any out-of-pocket costs associated with your visit.

Cancellation Policy

At The Paediatric Clinic we assist our families with reminders of appointments via SMS. However we ask that you take a clear note of your appointment date at the time of making the booking, as it is your responsibility to manage this and contact us to make changes if you are no longer able to attend your scheduled time.

We ask that you give our Reception team adequate notice if you are unable to attend your appointment. Our clinicians have long waiting lists and if your appointment is not attended, or cancelled at late notice, we are unable to fill the spot. This means that appointment times are lost, that could have been used to help other children and their families.

Late Cancellation and Failure to attend

If you cannot attend, please advise us at least 24hours prior to the appointment time. If you do not cancel your appointment or do not attend the consultation, a cancellation fee of up to 50% on the appointment may be charged. This cancellation fee will need to be addressed prior to further appointments being made.

Credit cards

We accept Mastercard & Visa

Prescriptions

If your child is known to us and recently seen in the Clinic, we can provide you with a repeat prescription for a minimal charge.

Referrals

A referral letter from your General Practitioner will be valid for 12 months from your first appointment. A referral letter from an obstetrician or other specialist will be valid for 3 months from your first appointment.

Medicare rebates

There is usually a rebate available for medical consultations through Medicare, if a valid referral is provided. Your Medicare rebate can be processed at the time of payment and usually takes 24-48 hours to deposit in to your account. Consultation without medical referral is available, but are not eligible for rebates through Medicare.
