You need to pay for services at the time of the appointment. We no longer offer split billing. The person responsible for paying the bills in full is the individual static account holder.

A text message will be sent to you prior to your appointment time. Your ‘Y’ reply to this sms upon receipt is required for the appointment to be kept scheduled. If you do not reply ‘Y’ to the sms upon receipt, your appointment could be cancelled.

If appointments are cancelled by you at the last minute, you may have to pay a fee at the discretion of your practitioner. This fee is not claimable through Medicare. A 48 hour cancellation policy applies, unless you speak with reception (click here for contact details) with more than 48 hours’ notice prior to the scheduled appointment time. You also agree to indemnify Total Health Care practice, keep indemnified and will be liable for against any claim, action, damage, outgoing or payment, etc. the Total Health Care practice may suffer, incur, or be held liable for, by reason of non-payment for service(s) provided by Total Health Care. This will include but is not limited to administration fees, debt collection agency fees, court costs, etc.

If there is an unpaid component of your previous bill, further appointments may be cancelled until the bill has been paid in full.

As our medical practitioners do not collaborate with each other on patient fees in order to comply with the Competition and Consumer Act 2010, each practitioner will bill according to their individual fee structure.

You are personally responsible for any damage caused by you or the person(s) you have with you, to any Total Health Care property.


No appointment will be made without your full completion of our patient details form.

All appointments are booked in advance and made at the discretion of the relevant practitioner.

All appointments with physicians or psychiatrists require that a valid referral is provided prior to the appointment date in order to receive any Medicare rebate.

Our practitioners want to ensure that you are provided with the best service. They are able to provide scripts, forms and reports out of scheduled appointments. This will occur additional fees.

Payment will be required to be cleared in full prior to the script, forms or other reports being released or future appointments being made.

Our terms of service may change from time to time, so it’s good to check for updates.

By making appointments or contacting Total Health Care, you consent to the above terms of service.
