Fees

Consultation fees may vary according to time and complexity.

Standard consultation time is 15 minutes.

Additional charges will apply for prolonged consultations, minor surgery, medical supplies, certificates, prescriptions, referral letters, home visits etc.

You are expected to pay for your consultation on the day of service unless prior arrangements have been made with our office administrator. We understand that at times urgent care may preclude payment on the day.

Unpaid overdue fees will incur an administration fee of $8.00. All debt collection fees will be the responsibility of the account holder.

If you are unable to arrive for your appointment that has been made by yourself for either a Doctors or Nurses appointment, and you do not notify us, a “did not arrive” (DNA) fee will apply.

 

Phone/ Remote Consultations

There is likely to be a charge for these consultations based on the time it takes to complete the consultation plus any time that is required to complete the notes, prescriptions and other tasks required for your management.

 

Parents and Caregivers of Under 14 Year Olds

Waihopai Health Services has reached agreement with the Southern Primary Healthcare Organisation (SPHO) – WellSouth – to provide standard 15 minute consultations at no charge to those children under 14 years old who are enrolled with us.

This agreement with the SPHO means that when your child, if under the age of 14 years old, presents for a standard consultation there will be no charge to the parent/caregiver for that standard consultation.

However reasonable charges may be made for:

  • Extended consultations (greater than 15 minutes)
  • Home visits and mileage
  • Extra procedures
  • Surgical procedures
  • Medical supplies
  • Referral letters
  • Phoned/faxed prescriptions
  • Non enrolled/casual consultations
  • Failing to arrive for a booked appointment without good reason

We are happy to clarify any questions that may arise.
