Updated: Nov 26, 2023


Due to increased costs of operations and to ensure your doctor continues to provide you with safe and high-quality medical services, as of 1 July 2022, all

of the doctors consulting at Harp Family Medical will be charging fees for

consultations.


For Pension-Card holders who were previously bulk-billed in most cases, this will be

new. If you are a Pension Card Holder, your doctor will charge you a reduced fee of

$75.

I have a Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA) Card, will I be bulk-billed by my doctor?


Yes, all of the doctors we support bulk-bill DVA Card holders.


I have ongoing medical problems and visit my doctor regularly. How can I reduce my costs?

If you have a chronic illness, ask your Doctor for a GP Management Plan. This will allow a number of your visits per year to be bulk-billed.
