Ballina Family Medical Centre Fees

Doctors at Ballina Family Medical Centre work independently and decide on their own fees.

The following tables for standard consults and pensioner rate consults cover most fees.

You are able to claim your Medicare refund at the time of payment via our EZIclaim system instantly back into an EFTPOS account, or, via a cheque or direct deposit from Medicare depending on prior registration of your bank details with them.

We do not charge a gap fee for children under the age of 14.
