Fees

Durham Health is a member of Pegasus Health.  If you are an enrolled patient you are entitled to subsidised health care.  We will see casual patients and visitors to our community, however they may not receive a subsidy and the fee charged will reflect this.

Accounts Policy

Our policy is that payment is required on the day of consultation unless prior arrangement is made.

We are happy to see non-enrolled and casual patients at our practice.  However payment is expected prior to the consultation with the doctor or nurse.  We do not offer accounts to non-enrolled or casual patients.

Any outstanding balances will have a monthly administration fee of $5.00 added until paid in full.

Please feel free to discuss alternative methods of payment with the Practice Manager or Front desk staff.  We welcome regular automatic payments if this assists your budgeting.

  • Any debt not paid after three months will be referred to our collection agency.
  • If debt collection costs are incurred these will be added to the patients account
  • No credit will be offered to casual patients or those of no fixed abode.
