Woonona Medical Practice is not a bulk billing practice. We ask that all accounts be paid at consultation time. We have EFTPOS facilities available (debit and credit card) and also accept EFT (direct deposit) and cheque. Medicare rebates may be claimed in person at a Medicare office, or can be sent online directly to Medicare and you will have the option of receiving your rebate via direct deposit into your nominated bank account.
