Updates to Medicare
Medicare on the 10th July announced changes to the Medicare Billing schedule and we are no longer able to provide bulk billed consults to new patients / patients that have not been seen in person in the past 12 months. If you would like to ask us a question please contact us
If you think that you should be able to make an appointment for a clinic that you have not been in person please contact your local Member of Parliament at http://www.aph.gov.au/Senators_and_Members/Members and/or the Minister for Health:
The Hon Greg Hunt MP

We work with your current doctor and will send any information to ensure that your clinical record is kept up to date.
All consults are bulk billed through Medicare or DVA.
If you do not have a Medicare card then there is an out of pocket cost dependent on the consult type.
When needed we will help organise laboratory and imaging studies in areas convenient to you
We can make referrals to your preferred specialist and fax it directly to the specialist, all you need to do is make the appointment
ABOUT BALANCE ONLINE GENERAL PRACTICE
Balance Online General Practice is an online / telehealth service in response to the coronavirus pandemic. Maintaining health and rapid assessment / triage while maintaining physical distancing is a current burden to the current medical model and to adapt to this pressure Medicare has increased the scope of telehealth to the general Australian public.
The goal of this clinic is therefore to provide assistance to all Australian residents in a safe and timely manner
We can organise most scripts and have them sent directly to your designated chemist without you doing anything
