Travel Health Clinic Fees

Travel consultation fees are privately billed with the majority being claimable from Medicare. Medicare does not cover the cost of medications, travel vaccinations or travel kits. This cost may be refundable in part from your private health insurer.

For more information about Travel Vaccinations refer to our Travel Health Clinic >> 

Other Professional Services

Professional services are those that require your doctor to revisit your medical record to respond to a request from you to access information, for example:

  • A request for copies of results.
  • A request for a copy of a lost pathology or x-ray referral.
  • A request to fax a copy of your pathology or x-ray referral.

These services may attract a Non-Medicare rebatable fee of $25.00.
