"Compassion and expertise are the foundations of quality healthcare".

That's Caritas in a nutshell...THE SPIRIT OF CARING"

Caritas Medical Centre is a bulk billing practice. Which means if you have a valid medicare card, you will not be charged any fee. Please ensure to bring your medicare card to the consultation. This includes all medical consultations but excludes employment medicals, workers compensation, suturing and assault cases. 
 
If you DO NOT have a medicare card you will have to pay an upfront fee (by cash or credit/eftpos card) for the consultation which is time based.
 
If your medicare card is expired or has been stolen or lost and you have applied for a new medicare card, you will be required to pay an upfront fee for the consultation. Part of that fee is refundable by medicare. 
 
Any procedures performed will not be bulk-billed, an upfront fee is charged for such a service. You can claim a rebate from Medicare.  

Workers compensation provides protection to workers and their employers in the event of a work related injury or condition. When a worker is injured at work, the employer, injured worker, insurer and treatment provider have responsibilities to ensure that the injured worker is provided with benefits and assistance to recover and make a safe and durable return to work.
 
If you have a work related injury, please inform the staff when you come in, so they can advise the appropriate fee etc.
 
 If it is an ongoing injury & claim number & insurance details have been provided, the invoice will be sent directly to the insurance company for payment. The patient will not be required to pay anything in this case.
 
As work injury related claims are complex and have many patient obligations we are more than happy to discuss your particular circumstances and how we may be of assistance to you. Feel free to discuss with our experienced staff.
