$170
Initial consultation in a single course of treatment (MBS 104).

Subsequent consultation in a single course of treatment (MBS 105).

Patients must present a concession card in their name, prior to their consultation, to receive a fee concession. Concession card information, including expiry date, will be recorded against the patient record to automatically apply fee concessions in future appointments.

Partners and dependents.

Any person listed as a partner or dependent on a current concession card may also be eligible for a fee concession. 

Expired cards.   

Patients with an expired concession card will not be eligible for a fee concession. When notified by reception staff of an expired card, patients should present their current concession card to continue to be eligible for a fee concession.
