Our Fees

In order to provide the quality of care that our clients expect, and we wish to provide, Turn The Corner Medical Clinic is a private billing practice. There will be a fee payable to the Clinic, over and above any Medicare rebate that you might be eligible to receive^. Medicare rebates are processed instantly using our Tyro terminal.

Standard appointments are 15 minutes, but for more complicated issues (e.g. mental health, IUDs, contraceptive implants, cervical screening, 6-week post-partum check, travel consult), or multiple issues, or if you are a new client, please book a 30 minute appointment to allow proper time. If we don’t need the time, you won’t be billed for it. New child clients, although not newborn babies, would usually need only a 15 minute appointment.

We provide pathology results electronically at no charge should a follow-up consultation not be required.

^ GFC “Good Fast Cheap” Clinic appointments are charged at the level of the Medicare rebate, with no additional fee payable to the Clinic. We run a GFC Clinic most weekdays in the middle of the day. Short appointments are available only to previous, registered clients of the Clinic. We ask clients to respect that the GFC Clinic is only for simple issues; sore throat, script request, urinary tract infection, etc. Please phone on the day for an appointment – these appointments are not able to be booked online.

We appreciate that our clients’ personal circumstances can often be quite dynamic, but when clients miss appointments without proper notice, it can mean others in need of care don’t get to see a doctor as quickly as they otherwise would. In the case of no-shows, or cancellations within 24 hours, we charge a modest FTA fee of up to $50.
