Fee Schedule

This is a private billing practice, with payment at the time of the consultation.

The fees below are listed as a guide only as most of the GPs at Gerringong Medical Practice are independent contractors. Please phone if you require more information.

We offer a discounted fee for pensioners, in recognition of financial limitations faced by some of these patients.

  • Children under the age of 16 years (if they have a Medicare card) with the exception of Saturday mornings and after-hours
  • DVA card holders, for eligible services

For regular prescription renewal only (excluding Authority scripts and pain management medication).

Our doctors may also recommend that you make a later appointment to ensure your safety and quality health care, for example, having your blood pressure checked for a blood pressure medication. The doctor will be unable to attend to any other issues in this appointment. If you have other issues, then please make a standard consultation (short or long appointment).

Nurse wound care

Our doctors have agreed that you will not be charged any out-of-pocket expense for wounds that are assessed, managed and dressed by our highly skilled nurses in conjunction with the doctors. We will continue to subsidise the provision of some basic dressings, however, Federal Government rules mean that when we provide specialised dressings we must charge you an out-of-pocket expense to cover the cost of these (which are provided at wholesale price) as well as the service provided by our nurses and doctors. Alternatively, you can provide your own dressings in which case there will be no out-of-pocket expense. For our DVA covered patients we may be able to provide you with a prescription for some dressings.
