** A $20 surcharge applies on weekends, and a $40 surcharge on public holidays

  • Fees are made up of a Medicare portion (which is fully refundable from Medicare) and a gap fee (an out-of-pocket fee with no refund available).
  • Your Medicare claim will be submitted by our team and the rebate is usually deposited into your bank account within 1-2 days.
  • Occasionally, if the Doctor is providing a care plan or other services with substantial additional Medicare fees they may choose to bill you under the Pay Doctor via Claimant (PDVC) scheme to keep your upfront costs down (see FAQ below for information on the PDVC scheme). In this case you will only pay the gap fee.
DVA

We cannot process DVA claims for daytime GP visits as the DVA bulk billing rates do not cover the costs of the visit. DVA patients must instead claim on Medicare and pay a gap (see above).

No Health Cover

A flat fee of $299 applies to all patients without Medicare or Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC). This fee applies for any visit length.

** A $20 surcharge applies on weekends, and a $40 surcharge on public holidays

  • Bookings for daytime GP home visits can be scheduled in advance.
  • See our Billing FAQs below and our Daytime GP Home Visit Service page for more details.
After Hours GP Home Visits

After hours, we bulk bill patients:

  • with DVA Gold cover
  • who live in Residential Aged Care Facility (RACF)
  • who live in a disability care home

Fees apply for all other patients (see below).

Billing FAQs

How can I pay

We accept Credit and Debit cards. We do not accept cash. Payment must be made during your home visit.

What is the Pay Doctor via Claimant (PDVC) scheme?

The Pay Doctor via Claimant (PDVC) scheme allows Medicare rebates to be paid directly to your doctor via a cheque issued by Medicare.

During your home visit, your doctor will ask you to sign an authority form to request your Medicare rebate(s). You will be issued a cheque by Medicare which you must then forward to Perth Home GP so your doctor can be paid.

We are not able to receive funds from Medicare by electronic transfer, as regulations prevent us from doing so as we are not bulk billing for our home visit services.

Where should I post my PDVC cheque to?

Please forward the cheque to:

Perth Home GP
PO BOX 420
Cottesloe
WA 6011

What if I cancel my booking

We require 12 hours notice for cancellation of a home visit or telehealth appointment or a missed consultation fee of $50 is payable.

You will not be able to book with our service in the future until the payment is made.

Why are callout fees higher for daytime home visit?

The reasons why in-hours visit fees are higher is because:

  • We only charge you a callout fee and fund the rest of the visit from Medicare
  • Medicare rebates available to patients for after hours consults are significantly higher than for in-hours consults.
  • Given doctors receive less remuneration from rebates for daytime visits we must charge a higher callout fee to cover costs.

Why can I not book my after hours visit in advance?

Higher Medicare rebates are available in the after hours period for patients with unexpected illnesses (that cannot wait to be reviewed until the next in-hours period). It is for this reason that we are able to offer reduced callout fees after hours.

Medicare regulations prevent us from billing urgent items if patients are booked prior to the onset of the current after hours period. This is why we must wait until the after hours period before accepting bookings.

See our After Hours GP Home Visit page to learn more about the service and when we operate.
