Bendigo Community Health Services will charge a $15 processing fee for all script requests from our Medical Practices starting July 1, 2019.
The fee will stand unless a waiver is privately agreed by your doctor.
You can still be bulk-billed for a script consult with a doctor but all scripts requested by the pharmacy without you seeing a doctor will incur the $15 processing fee.
Our Medical Practice recommends all patients see their doctor as part of a clinical review process before a new script is issued.
As scripts are a normal part of our consulting service a fee will be processed.
We appreciate your support as we introduce this change and apologise for any inconvenience.
If you have any questions about the change please speak to our staff during your next appointment or call our Medical Practice on 5434 4300.
