FEE INCREASE for 2024

Jan 15, 2024

Please be advised The Surgery at Jerra’s fee schedule will increase from Monday 29 January 2024.

Our consultation fees take into account the growing costs of running a medical practice, including medical indemnity cover and other insurances, the higher cost of medical equipment and supplies, staff and operating expenses.

We cannot absorb these rising expenses.

Your Medicare rebate has failed to keep up with the rising costs of running a general practice. If you’d like to discuss the cost of health care, please feel free to contact your local or federal member.

Standard consults will increase to $103.

For more information, ask at reception or go to the patient information section.
