Melbourne Medical Skin Clinic Fee Policy

(Effective from May 2019. This fee policy is subject to change)

Please note that the Melbourne Medical Skin Clinic (MMSC) is a Private Billing, General Practice (Primary Care) Specialised Skin Clinic.

Patients who hold a valid Centrelink Concession Card are billed at our Discount Fee rate for general consultations and minor non- cosmetic and cosmetic type procedures as outlined in the below fee schedule. You are required to present a valid concession card and Medicare card for this facility at the time of your consultation.

Patients who do not hold a valid Centrelink Concession Card are billed at our Private Fee rate for their general consultations and minor medical & surgical procedures. You are required to present a valid Medicare card for this facility where relevant.

If our patients require follow up consults for any of their initial problems, then all those follow up visits are billed at our Discount Fee Rates up to 6 months. If needed, any ongoing follow up visits after the first six months of the initial(first) visit will be billed at our Private Fee Rate starting with a new billing cycle for another six months.

We offer Medicare Easyclaim facility onsite where by Medicare rebates are claimed automatically and immediately refunded into your nominated bank account.

We accept cash, EFTPOS, MasterCard, VISA and AMEX for payments.

If you need a surgical or medical procedure, the doctor will advise you the Full Fee, Medicare rebate (if relevant) and Gap Fees for the required procedure at the time of the initial consultation.

You are advised that you cannot attend for a non-cosmetic or cosmetic procedure without having a prior consultation with the doctor. If you are unsure, please contact the clinic to know what is meant by a non-cosmetic or cosmetic procedure before attending the clinic. For an example, freezing viral warts do fall under a non-cosmetic medical procedure but freezing skin tags, do fall under a cosmetic procedure. Your procedure fees will vary on the basis whether your procedure is considered as non-cosmetic or cosmetic procedure. Therefore, please make sure you are attending for a non-cosmetic or cosmetic procedure by contacting the clinic.

You are kindly informed that fees are payable on the day of your consultation.

Tables below summarise and provide a guide regarding our consultation fees and out of pocket fee (gap fees) for minor procedures and other services we offer at our clinic.

Please note MMSC practice fee policy is subject to change.
