Your fee doesn’t just pay the doctors, it pays for all the things you see . . .
receptionists, nurses, administration staff, cleaning staff, medical equipment, building premises
and many things you don’t see . . .
insurance, IT and communications, training, registration, compliance.
If you are registered with Medicare, the refund can be transferred by EFT into your account within 15 minutes.
