The Lockyer Valley Medical Centre is a mixed billing surgery.

Bulkbilling available to:

  • Children under 16 years of age
  • Commonwealth Card Holders (ie Health Care Card, Pensioner, and Commonwealth Seniors Health Card),
  • Allianz OSHC card holders.

Private billing:

Private patients pay a gap beyond the Medicare refund. This varies according to the complexity of service or procedure. Full payment will be required at the time of the consultation.

The Medicare rebate may be processed through Medicare Easy Claim available at the practice onto a debit card. In case the Easy Claim facility is not available, the rebate can also be transmitted through EFT directly into your bank account details registered with Medicare. Please let the reception staff know how you wish to proceed with claiming your refund.

The reception staff will try and assist you to the best of their ability however, Medicare is directly responsible for transfer of rebate/timeframe/method of transfer. In case the rebate has not been received, the patient is advised to call 132 011 directly.
