Reduced fees for Community Services Card Holders

This is a new Government initiative, being rolled out to general practices in stages from the 1st of December 2018.

Practices can opt into this initiative at various dates over the next year.

While we very much support being able to lower fees, we have not been given enough time to properly analyse the impact on our Practice.

This may have an effect on our ability to continue to provide the current level of service to all of our patients if we opt in immediately.

The cost of ACC consultations for Community Service Card holders has reduced from the 1st of December to reflect the increased subsidy for these appointments.

We hope to make a decision as soon as possible and will keep you informed.

In the meantime if you are experiencing financial hardship, please discuss the issue with your GP or the Practice Manager.
