Blackbutt is a Private billing practice with discounted fees for Health Care and Pension Card Holders.

Due to Medicare changes, the cost of appointments has increased slightly. The money you get back for the appointment (Medicare rebate) has also increased. The Result is that the amount that you pay out of pocket is the same. Please see the new fees below.

* Holders of Government Health Care cards and Pension cards are eligible for Discounted Fees.
