Health on Kensington expects payment in full on the day. We do not routinely bulk bill.
Our receptionists will help patients submit their Medicare claims so patients receive their refund for the rebated amount. Refunds can be processed by:
- Easyclaim - the Medicare rebate amount can be deposited instantly into a cheque or savings account via an EFTPOS card (Payments can be made by any method, but cannot be refunded to a Credit account).
- Registered Account – the Medicare rebate amount can be deposited directly into the patient’s nominated account. The patient must record their bank details with Medicare.
Children under 16 years old and Secondary students with a Student ID card will be BULK BILLED for standard consultations at Health on Kensington.
