Health Funds and Medicare Bulk Billing

Bulk Billing Optometrist in Rosebud

Is my eye test bulk billed?

Anthony Liska bulk bills eye examinations to Medicare, even if you’ve had your eyes tested within the past two years. This ensures that all members of the community have equal access to modern equipment and quality and experienced eye care.

Please make sure you bring your current Medicare card with you to your appointment to be bulk billed.

You do not need a referral from a medical practitioner to have an eye examination by an optometrist.

Most contact lens consultations are not covered by Medicare and therefore cannot be bulk-billed to Medicare. There is usually a fitting fee for first time contact lens wearers.

Medicare does not cover spectacles, contact lenses and optical aids. These are covered by Private health insurance funds in their ancillary or ‘extras’ policies.

What to expect from an eye test?  How often do I need my eyes tested?
