Who is eligible for public care

  • Adults 18 years of age and older with a Health Care Card or Pension Concession Card
  • Youth aged 13 to 18 years of age with a Health Care Card or Pension Concession Card or Medicare Child Dental Benefits (All Medicare Child Dental Benefits are bulk billed)
  • All children up to 13 years of age

Children and young people are also considered as a priority group, so tell the receptionist when you call to make an appointment who it is for, and you may not need to go on a waiting list.

For those under 13 years who have a health care card or a pensioner concession card, this service is FREE.

For those under 13 years who do no have these cards, there will be a one off payment that will cover most treatment required.

Adults are charged a small fee per appointment.
