Fees

Hawkins Clinic determines its own fee structure because of the inability of Medicare fees to keep pace with inflation.

Patients are encouraged to pay for all consults on the day. Our TYRO Eftpos system allows patients to receive Medicare rebates back into their account within 11 seconds when they pay in full with their debit card. Alternatively patients can use their credit card and receive their Medicare rebate the next day into their bank account. Please note the only condition for the next day rebate is that patients need to have registered their account with Medicare for the rebates to be put back into their account.

The doctor is responsible at all times to determine the fee they feel is appropriate for the individual patient. Patients are encouraged to discuss with their doctor any difficulty they may have in meeting the consultation fee.

Below are our general fees for other types of consultations we offer-

Non Attendance

If you are unable to attend your appointment and haven't phoned the clinic to cancel in advance you may be charged a non-attendance fee. Patients with mobile phones are encouraged to register for SMS reminders which are generated from within our appointment software.
