Helping you understand the rules of Medicare, private billing & health funds

The vast majority of optometrists rely on Medicare to help sustain some or all of their clinical services. As scope of practice evolves, more practitioners will be looking at how they can privately bill patients for services that are not Medicare rebateable.

When deciding how to change your practice billing systems, bill more efficiently or put different processes in place, there are many factors that need to be considered and we are here to help.

With a collection of resources as well as our on-call in-house team of optometrists, you can be assured of guidance through any tricky issue.
