How Does Bulk Billing Work?

In a practice where bulk billing is featured, this means that you pass your right to a Medicare benefit on to your service provider, allowing Medicare to pay your doctor directly. This allows you to visit your doctor without any out-of-pocket expense.

When you come in for your first visit, Forrest Road Medical Centre will either have you:

  • Sign a form
  • or

  • Press “OK” on the EFTPOS terminal following your appointment.

It’s as simple as that!
