Medicare Bulk Billing

You can get free medical treatment if your health professional accepts the Medicare benefit as full payment for a service. We call this bulk billing.

Many health professionals bulk bill pensioners or Health Care Card holders.

If they bulk bill, you:

  • must sign a form, or
  • press OK on the EFTPOS terminal after your appointment and get a copy of the assignment

You won’t pay any fees.

If you have more than one service in a visit, you may not be bulk billed for everything.

You’ll need a Medicare card to be bulk billed. If you don’t have a Medicare card, complete a Medicare enrolment application form.
