We have Bulk bill & Mixed & Privately Billing medical practitioners and we appreciate full payment of fees on the day of consultation. We use tyro for ease of payment.
Why private billing??
Medicare pays around $38.20 to a Level B consultation, lasting up to 20 min. Even if our doctors see a patient every 15 minutes, then Medicare fees for the doctors will be approximately $152 per hour. After practice costs, including room rental, facility fees, staff pay, amenities, staff superannuation and income tax etc… net amount will be just less then $50 per hour. We value our doctors and we wish to maintain very best general practitioners and maintain excellent staff and ensure our philosophy of a very high quality services is possible and fairly maintained.
Kon-Tiki Medical Centre’s aim is to provide the highest quality care for our patients.
Bulk billing is available with certain practitioners, on their discretion.
