The doctors at Northside Eye Specialists are medical specialists and therefore you should be referred by either a General Practitioner or an Optometrist. By ensuring you have a relevant and current referral you are entitled to a Medicare rebate for your consultation. You are able to attend without a referral, but you will not receive as much back from Medicare.
Yes, if your referral is current this will maximise the Medicare rebate. The consultation and most testing procedures will attract a Medicare rebate which can be submitted by our front desk staff on your behalf.
