Medpods Medical Centre Yeppoon offers a mixed billing fee structure.
Please note that although private billing applies, the following groups of patients can access bulk billed consultations:
- Patients 16 years of age and under
- Patients with a Centrelink health care card or pension card
If you are an overseas visitor and do not hold a Medicare card, there will be a consultation fee incurred which can be discussed with the Receptionist prior to your appointment.
All EFTPOS and Medicare rebatable services are available at reception.
Medpods gives the option of booked appointments either online, via phone or in person at the clinic OR you may decide to present to the clinic as a walk-in-patient if there is an appointment available or if there is an urgent need to see a doctor.
Our friendly Receptionist will assist you with your booking and advise you of an approximate waiting time.
If you are dropping in while shopping, we will send you notification when you are due to return for your appointment to make the process as easy and flexible as we can!
We also have 15 minute appointments to allow you ample time to spend with your GP and work through any concerns.
If you feel that this time will not be sufficient or you are requiring immunisations, minor procedures, insurance or Centrelink reports or any other service requiring additional time, please advise the Receptionist when making your appointment and we can extend this time for you.
Your Medpods GP will advise you when your result is expected and ask you to book an appointment for this time. Should you wish to call the clinic and check on the status of the result please do so. However, our Receptionists are unable to provide results over the phone, due to confidentiality, and will let you know if you need to book in with your GP.
