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.
