Our Fees

In order for our doctors to provide quality care, Sage Medical is a mixed billing clinic. Bulk billing is at our doctor’s discretion, but will generally be offered for children under 6 with a Medicare Card, HCC holders, Age Pension and DVA Pension card holders, for standard appointments. 

For all other patients, there will be a fee payable to the clinic, over and above any Medicare rebate that you might be eligible to receive. We will only charge payments after your appointment, with the fee based on the length and type of appointment. You will receive your Medicare rebate via EFT to your Medicare-nominated bank account, usually within 24 hours.

For In-clinic appointments: We accept cash, Visa/Mastercard and debit cards. 

For Telehealth appointments:  Telehealth (video or phone) consultations are billed privately at the same rate as the equivalent in-clinic service.  As part of the booking process, we will provide a fee estimate, and you will be asked to provide credit card details. 

Standard doctor appointments are 15 minutes. For more complicated consults (e.g., mental health, pregnancy options, eating disorder), or for multiple issues discussed, please book a 30-minute appointment with the doctor to allow adequate time. We ask all new adult patients to also book a 30-minute appointment. New child patients generally only require a 15-minute appointment.
