We are a Private Billing Practice. Appointments will incur an out of pocket expense. If you have a Health Care Card, Pension Concession Card, are under 16 or a full time student you will be bulk billed for a pre-booked appointment Monday – Friday.
- Why do we charge a fee for medical services?
At Glebe Medical Centre the quality care that you receive is a product of the dedication and expertise of our staff and a modern, well-equipped facility.
Current and previous governments have failed to regularly increase the Medicare rebates. This means Medicare rebates have never kept pace with the cost of living and have never covered the true cost of delivering quality medical care.
This charge ensures Glebe Medical Centre can continue to provide you and your family with high quality healthcare whilst also covering the ever increasing costs of running a business in Sydney especially while under a Medicare freeze environment.
Glebe Medical Centre has chosen to continue to subsidise your healthcare by setting our fees lower than the current recommended fee schedule set by the Medical Association of Australia (AMA).
