Do I need a referral?

A valid referral is required for a specialist appointment – it also allows eligibility for a Medicare rebate. Referrals can be from either a GP or a specialist. Please note that specialist referrals are only valid for 3 months, whereas GP referrals are valid for one year.

What are our fees?

A Medicare rebate is applicable for all appointments and this claim can be submitted on the day.  There are also ‘out of pocket’ costs which vary depending on the clinician and the nature of the appointment. Please contact our reception staff for further information about fees. Fees can be paid for by EFTPOS, credit card or cash.

Can I claim a Medicare rebate?

A Medicare rebate is applicable for all appointments and this claim can be submitted on the day provided a current referral is supplied.

Can I claim the appointment fees through my private health insurance?

No. In general, private health insurance does not cover out-patient clinic fees.  Please contact your health fund to determine what you are covered for.

How long will I have to wait to get an appointment?

Our usual waiting periods are short. This will also depend on which specialist you have been referred to.

How do I find MCPC?

Please note: we are not within the Monash Medical Centre or Monash Children’s Hospital but just a short walk from these facilities.
