Melbourne Medical Skin Clinic Fee Policy

(Effective from July 2017. Fee policy is subject to change)

Please note that the Melbourne Medical Skin Clinic (MMSC) is a private billing, specialised General Practice (Primary Care) Skin Clinic.

Children under 16 years and patients who hold a valid concession card are billed at our Discount Fee* rate for general consultations and minor medical and surgical procedures as outlined in the fee schedule. You are required to present a valid concession card for this facility at the time of your consultation.

Patients who do not fall into above categories are billed at our “Full Fee” rate for their general consults and minor medical & surgical procedures.

If our patients require more than 2 follow up consults for any of their initial problems within 3 months of the first presentation, then all those follow up visits are bulkbilled from the third follow up visit onwards within these three months. Any subsequent follow up visits after 3 months of the initial visit are billed at our discount fee rate up to six months. If needed, any ongoing follow up visits after six months of the initial visit will be billed at full fee rate as per new visit starting with a new billing cycle as outlined above.

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