Those currently under concession are offered a discounted rate off their appointments. Please note: Midwest Aero Medical does not routinely Bulk Bill its patients and all weekend appointments will be charged a private fee.

Certain consultations are not covered by Medicare. These include all medicals, ear irrigation's, drug and alcohol screening and some wound care. These are to be paid at the time of consultation as we do not offer accounts. Please check with reception when booking to discuss fees.
