In order for doctors to provide the quality of care that their clients expect, and we wish to provide, Turn The Corner Medical Clinic is a private billing clinic at both its Brunswick and Northcote locations. There will generally be a fee payable to your doctor or psychologist, over and above any Medicare rebate that you might be eligible to receive.
For In-clinic appointments: We accept Visa/Mastercard credit cards as well as all debit cards; these cards incur a small surcharge. We accept eftpos cards with no surcharge. We do not accept cash or cheques. Medicare rebates are processed instantly onto a debit card using our Tyro terminal – you need a physical debit card, though, and aren’t able to use your phone.
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 doctor appointments are 15 minutes, but for more complicated issues (e.g. mental health, pregnancy consult), or multiple issues, or if you are a new client, please book a 30 minute appointment with the doctor to allow proper time. If we don’t need the time, you won’t be billed for it. Children aged 1-12 years would usually need only a 15 minute appointment with the doctor.
We provide pathology results electronically at no charge should a follow-up consultation not be required.
Please note: Clinicians working at Turn The Corner are independent contractors who determine their own fees. The fees below are indicative.
