Consultation Fee Increases at HHMP from 1 July 2022

From the 1st of July 2022, the fees for most consultation types at HHMP will be increasing.

We have kept our fee increase to about 5% for most items. This is despite the fact that over the last last few years costs have increased significantly and in the case of some items by over 50%. Such increases have been widely flagged in the media and are the result of the increased costs over the last few years and the fact that the Medicare rebate has failed to keep up with the true costs of providing quality services.

HHMP has always focused on quality of care and providing patients with the time they need to properly address their concerns.  It is impossible to provide a quality service with a focus on medical excellence without charging a gap. That said, the staff and doctors at HHMP endeavour to assist those in need with reduced fees or bulk billing for select patients on a case by case basis.
