Medicare Online and Safety Net

 

Technology is now available for you to automatically receive your Medicare Rebate into your bank account at the time of payment,  rather than manually claiming it later. This way, you effectively only pay the gap.

 

The Medicare Safety Net guards against excessive out of pocket costs during times when health services are needed frequently. It limits these costs in any given calendar year. Access to this scheme is via Medicare.

Excellence. Empathy.. Every Encounter.
