After Hours Doctor Southport
Bulk Billing Medical Centre
Gold Coast After Hours Doctor operates a fully bulk billed surgery in Southport. We provide bulk billed medical care as well as after hours GP services available on weekends, nights and public holidays.
What is bulk billing?
Bulk billing and Medicare are Government initiatives that pay doctors 85% to 100% of your medical bill for eligible services. This helps doctors by simplifying billing and helps make medical services more accessible to everyone.
In other words, your doctor charges Medicare directly for your visit to the doctor. In most cases, this means by visiting a bulk billing doctor, you could have the majority or full cost of the visit paid for by Medicare.
If you visit a non-bulk billing doctor, you will be required to make full payment, however, you can still claim back part of or even the full amount from Medicare for eligible services.
Medicare usually does not cover the following:
- Ambulance (Residents of QLD are automatically covered for Ambulance services. Residents of others states may incur fees)
- Some types of dental
- Private hospital costs
