The doctors at Corio Medical Clinic privately bill. Doctors consultation fees are payable in full at the time of consultation and Medicare rebates can be deposited into your savings or cheque account at the same time.

Doctors will bulk-bill their patients who are children 15 years and younger, Health Care card holders, or Pensioners. Telehealth consultations are also bulk billed. Please bring your Medicare Card and any pension or Veterans Affairs cards with you to the clinic.

Some services, including WorkCover injuries and medical examinations for insurance and employment, are not able to be legally bulk-billed. For services not covered by Medicare, you will be responsible for payment at the time of consultation, or your employer will be billed directly. For Workcover injuries, if your claim is not accepted, or if your employer does not settle the account, it will be billed through Medicare.

For good quality care, all patients are required to make an appointment to see a doctor for all test results (preferably where possible, the requesting doctor). To ensure strict patient confidentiality and compliance with the National Privacy Act is maintained, pathology and radiology results will not be given over the telephone by our reception and/or nursing staff.

It is the patient's responsibility to follow up on their test results, and we encourage patients to be proactive in their healthcare and book an appointment for results before leaving the clinic.

We will make every effort to contact patients with abnormal results. However, it cannot be assumed that test results are normal if there is no contact from our clinic. Patients should be aware of the potential seriousness of not attending follow-up appointments, recalls, or investigations.

Unless encryption is used, email is not a secure platform for communicating sensitive information such as test results. To protect your privacy, you should never email personal information such as your birth date, address, Medicare card number, etc. to our clinic.

Please ensure your contact details are kept up to date with reception.

Yes, you will need to see a doctor to have a script written. Doctors have a duty of care to their patients and need to determine if you should be prescribed a medication based on various factors, or if you should continue or cease taking a medication they may have prescribed for you previously.

Depending on your individual circumstance, you may also need to see a nurse either before or after your appointment with a doctor. Our reception staff can answer any particular questions you may have about your appointment.
