To make an appointment
Child Allergy Geelong is a private fee for service specialist clinic. Each patient must have a valid referral before being seen in order to claim a Medicare rebate. We require the referral to be posted or faxed to the practice (5222 7517) prior to an appointment being made to ensure the referral is appropriate and that you receive the service you expect and deserve.
After the referral has been received by our staff please phone 5222 7721 to make any necessary appointments.
A referral from a general practitioner is valid for 12 months and must be renewed for ongoing management or if a new problem arises in order to claim the Medicare rebate. A referral from a specialist is only valid for 3 months. If the problem is likely to be long lasting, you may wish to discuss the provision of an indefinite referral from the general practitioner.
Fees and rebates
The fees are based on a discounted AMA recommended fee. We require payment on the day of consultation. Payments may be made by cash, credit card or EFTPOS.
A discount fee is given to pensioners and holders of a family health care card. The fee is in two parts – consultation and testing.
Our practice provides online Medicare claiming to enable the Medicare rebate to be returned to your nominated account at the time of payment on the day of consultation.
We post practice information and fee structure to all patients prior to consultation.
Monday to Friday 9.00 am to 1.00pm and 2.00pm to 4.30 pm. Closed on public holidays.
Sometimes the use of telemedicine can be useful for short term follow up of some conditions. To be eligible for bulk billing of these consultations there must be written consent, the patient must be more than 15km away and the video link (including Facetime or Skype) must be taken from an area in an eligible location.
