What are our fees

The standard Department of Health fees policy that applies to most of our public services considers:

  • the income level of the person receiving the service; and
  • the ability of that person to pay the fee.

 

The cost of our public Dental Services is set by the Department of Human Services through Dental Health Services Victoria.

We are committed to ensuring that our services are affordable to people and that no one experiences financial hardship in paying our fees.  No one will be denied a service because of their inability to pay.

If you have difficulty paying our fees you can discuss this with your service provider and in these circumstances fees may be waived or reduced.

Please check the tables below or go to the page you are interested in to find more details about the service you want.

These tables will help you find the cost of the different services we offer.  Additional information about all of these services can be found if you go to the drop down menu.

Table 1:            Income levels and what the service will cost

The Department of Health outlines three levels of income that we use to guide us in talking with you about fees you need to pay when having a ‘direct service’, that is a one-to-one service with one of our health professionals, except Dental,  these are in Table 1.

Table 2:            The cost of Public Dental Services

The Department of Human Services set fees for public dental services in Victoria through Dental Health Services Victoria, or through Medicare Australia, these are in Table 2.  Information regarding fees within our private dental service can be found at the end of Table 2.
