SmartCare Diagnostics is a bulk billing practice. Please remember to always bring your Medicare card and concession card to your appointments. To make the process of claiming easier we can process your claim electronically via Medicare online at the time of your appointment.
Unfortunately, Medicare do not provide bulk billing for 24 hr blood pressure monitors. Therefore, if you require a 24hr blood pressure monitor there will be a cost of $75.00 or for concession card holders $40. This will be payable at the time of your appointment.
Please note that in order for a Medicare refund to be payable, a valid referral is required. Referrals from general practitioners are valid for 12 months and those from specialists are valid for 3 months only. If a referral is not current, Medicare will pay only a small portion of the Medicare rebate. If you are unsure about the status of your referral please contact us on (07) 3444 4415.
