As with all other industries, we have been feeling the pinch of increased costs due to  inflation.  We have been absorbing these increases for the past year and have not changed our fees since 1 January 2023.  We need to make this adjustment now to ensure the viability of the practice.  We are very privileged to attract wonderful medical practitioners, nurses and staff to work at the practice in service of our community.  To continue to attract great humans, we need to make sure they are being paid appropriately. 

We understand that healthcare costs are a concern for many individuals and families, especially in the context of broader economic challenges. Please know that we remain committed to providing exceptional care while also being mindful of the financial impact on our patients. We are continuously exploring ways to optimize our operations and minimize costs wherever possible.

Here are some ways you can minimize your out of pocket medical costs

  1. Register your family for the Medicare safety net to ensure you are getting the highest available Medicare rebate. See instructions here
  2. If you have a chronic condition, ask your GP about a GP Management Plan.  This will ensure your visits are organized and efficient so you can get all your prescriptions and referrals at regular intervals rather than ad hoc appointments
  3. Allow adequate time to explore your concerns by booking a longer appointment.  Doing a thorough evaluation from the start can reduce the need for lots of shorter appointments.
  4. Avoid jumping around between practices. This often results in unnecessary duplication of history taking and investigations.  If you do choose to spread your care across various practices –  please keep a copy of all investigations to share with your health care team at each appointment.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding this fee adjustment, please don’t hesitate to reach out to our manager at 02 9087 4600 or [email protected]. We are here to assist you and address any inquiries you may have. 

If you have concerns about your out of pocket expensive due to poor low Medicare rebates, we encourage you to contact your local government member on 02 9392 5248.

Thank you for your understanding and continued trust in Rozelle Total Health. We value your partnership in your healthcare journey and look forward to serving you with dedication and compassion.
