Introducing Mixed Billing in our Practice

Access to healthcare for the community we serve is important to us. Cranebrook Doctors unwavering commitment to maintaining and improving the quality of healthcare services we deliver is our top priority

 

To protect the sustainability of our practice and ensure the standard of the services we provide; Cranebrook Doctors will now become a Mixed- Billing practice. This will allow us to maintain the highest quality of care we provide while still being able to address our patients with substantial needs.

Starting the 1st of September of 2022, we will be introducing the “Mixed-Billing” system. Most consultations are time-based and will incur private fees for patients who are not eligible under the bulk-billing criteria. Fees are payable at the time of consultation by cash, credit card or EFTPOS.

 

We are still able to bulk bill eligible patient groups for most of the consultation types.

  • Children under 18 years of age
  • Patients over 65 years old
