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 generally be a fee payable to the Clinic, over and above any Medicare rebate that you might be eligible to receive^.

For In-clinic appointments: We accept all major credit and debit cards; we do not accept cash or cheques. Medicare rebates are processed instantly onto a debit card using our Tyro terminal. For Telehealth appointments: As part of the booking process we will provide a fee estimate, and you will be asked to provide credit card details. We will charge the card after your appointment with a fee based on the length and type of appointment, and you will receive your Medicare rebate via EFT to your Medicare-nominated bank account, usually within a couple of days.

Standard appointments are 15 minutes, but for more complicated issues (e.g. mental health, pregnancy consult), or multiple issues, or if you are a new adult or baby 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 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. These short appointments are available only to existing clients, and we ask you to respect that the GFC is only for simple issues; sore throat, script request, urinary tract infection, etc. Please phone on the day – 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.
