So why choose a bulk billing doctor?

Our team of bulk billing doctors will ask you to sign a form subsequent to the appointment and patients will be given the copy of the form. The full payment will be subsidized by the government using your Medicare benefit. Not all doctors allow patients to bulk bill, At WellCrest we understand the everyday demand for families and believe it is vital that those that are suffering from illness doesn’t have to worry about the expense associated with seeing a doctor.

This is not just beneficial to you but also to the doctors.
