We are a not-for-profit organisation and endeavour to make your visit as convenient and affordable as we can. When visiting our practice, costs may differ from time to time depending on the treatments you receive on the day. Billings are Medicare rebated, providing you have a current written doctors referral, and we provide on-site Medicare claiming for these patients. Any additional procedures may incur an extra fee, which will be discussed with you at the time of your appointment.
If you have any further questions about billings, please do not hesitate to contact us, or speak to one our administration staff who will be happy to assist you.
A referral is an important part of your appointment, as it not only provides us with information from your general practitioner, but also allows you to claim the maximum Medicare rebate. Without a current written doctors referral you will be unable to claim for the fees you incur whilst visiting us. A referral from your GP is valid for 12 months, or 3 months if it is from a specialist. Once your referral has expired, you will have to obtain a new one from your referring doctor. Your referral is valid from your initial visit at QIDerm and will have to be kept up to date during your treatments.
To see a dermatologist at our clinic you do not need a referral, however you will be unable to claim a Medicare rebate for your visit.
