What is an after hours general practitioner?

An after-hours general practitioner is a doctor who provides medical care outside of regular business hours. This may include evenings, weekends, and holidays when regular doctor's offices are typically closed.

After-hours general practitioners are generally available to see patients who need urgent or emergency care or are unable to see their regular doctor during regular office hours. These doctors may work in dedicated after-hours clinics or may be on-call to provide care at other times.

After-hours general practitioners may also provide routine care for patients who are unable to see their regular doctor during regular office hours.

Are after hours general practitioners covered by Medicare?

Yes, after-hours general practitioners are typically covered by Medicare, Australia's national health insurance program. Medicare covers a range of medical services, including those provided by general practitioners.

However, the specific services and treatments that are covered and the out-of-pocket costs that patients may be required to pay can vary depending on the specific service and the patient's circumstances.

It is always a good idea for patients to check with their doctor and their Medicare provider to understand what services and treatments are covered, and what costs they may be responsible for.

Do after hours general practitioners bulk bill?

Yes, after-hours general practitioners may offer bulk billing, which means that they will bill Medicare directly for the services they provide, and the patient will not be required to pay any out-of-pocket costs.

However, not all after-hours general practitioners offer bulk billing, and some may charge a fee for their services. Patients should check with their doctor and their Medicare provider to understand what costs they may be responsible for when receiving care from an after-hours general practitioner.
