Since the federal government Medicare changes came into effect on 1st January 2015 our fee structure has altered.
For a standard consultation (45 minutes) the cost is $86. Depending on your age and when you last had your eyes examined your Medicare rebate will be between $28.45 and $56.80. The $86 fee covers you for your standard consultation, Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) screening, digital retinal imaging and corneal topography (if needed).
If the optometrist feels that a full consultation is not needed then you will be billed $58 for a short consultation. The medicare rebate for this is $28.45.
We have Medicare Easyclaims available to process your Medicare claim meaning your rebate can be automatically placed back onto your EFTPOS Cheque or Savings account.
Please note Eyefix Optometrists continue to bulk bill pension card holders, centrelink health care card holders, DVA Gold card holders, children and full time students.
