Using bulk billing
It is up to the health professional to choose to offer you a bulk billed service.
If you’re bulk billed, you assign your right to the Medicare benefit to the health professional by:
- signing a form, or
- press OK on the EFTPOS terminal after your appointment
You won’t pay any fees and you'll get a copy of the assignment form.
If you have more than one service in a visit, you may not be bulk billed for everything.
