Yes, but some restrictions apply. Medicare rebates are available for all our medical services listed under the Medicare Benefits Schedule (MBS).
To be eligible to claim a Medicare rebate on medical and surgical services you must:
- Be enrolled in Medicare; and
- Have a current Medicare card.
Cosmetic services, such as anti-wrinkle and dermal injectables, are not covered by Medicare.
You may also claim a rebate on your consultations with the dermatologist, if you have a valid referral for specialist treatment from your general practitioner (GP) or another specialist.
As of 1 July 2021, the current Medicare rebate, during an single course of treatment, is $76.80 for an initial attendance or $38.60 for a subsequent attendance. Rebates for other medical and surgical services vary, but can be found on the Department of Health MBS website.
