Dear Valued Patient of The Health Hub at Eaton Fair,

Bulk Billing NOW available*

The Health Hub is pleased to announce that from Wednesday 2nd August 2023, the Health Hub at Eaton Fair will re-introduce bulk billing for standard consultations for the following patient groups;
  • Children aged to 16 years old
  • Health Care Card Holders (no matter your age)
  • Disability Pensioners (no matter your age)
  • Aged Pensioners (65+ years) on a full pension
*To be eligible you must hold a valid medicare card
*This is for a standard consultation only
*Bulk Billing is at the discretion of the individual GP so please check when booking your appointment if you will be eligible for bulk billing
*Bulk billing applies to weekdays only. Weekend appointments will continue to be privately charged for everyone

Why have we made these changes?

  • We understand the financial pressures that our patients are enduring at the moment given the current financial situation and we would like to help you and ensure your health is always looked after
  • We have carefully considered the impending changes to medicare and the bulk bill incentive item increase from the 1st November 2023 (which only applies to those population groups listed above)
  • We decided to make these changes now (instead of waiting until 1st November) so that we can help you to better look after your health in the meantime
Please Note:
Those patients who are not eligible for bulk billing will continue to be charged privately.

Kindest regards,

The Health Hub at Eaton Fair
