Ocean Grove Medical Clinic fees
Ocean Grove Medical Clinic is not a bulk billing clinic. We provide a transparent fee structure so patients are clear on how much they will be out of pocket before they visit either of our medical clinic at Barwon Heads or Ocean Grove to see a doctor, or for nursing services at Ocean Grove. There are no hidden costs.
All fees are requested to be paid on the day. If you have difficulties paying on the day please see reception staff. A fee of $5.00 will be added to your account if your account is not paid on the day of consultation.
Failure to attend a booked appointment may incur a cancellation fee of $50 – this fee is not rebated by Medicare.

Veteran Affairs patients, nursing home patients and childhood immunizations fees are bulk billed.
Due to the very high cost associated with wound care, all patients (including concession card holders) maybe asked to contribute to the cost of dressings, bandages and other consumable items.
Additional out of pocket costs may arise from pathology, imaging, specialist and other services that patients may be referred to.
