Bulk Billing

Apunipima’s Primary Health Care Centres are Bulk Billing medical practices. That means we do not directly charge patients, we accept a Medicare rebate from the government as full payment for the service provided.

To be bulk billed:

  • The person receiving the service must hold and provide a valid Medicare Card or number; and
  • A Medicare rebate must apply to the service we provide.

Please bring your Medicare details, or the Medicare details of the person recieving the service with you to present to our staff when you arrive in our Centre.
