Bolton Street Medical Centre - Eltham Ridge Medical Centre

We know the Eltham Ridge Medical Centre as the Bolton Medical Centre. The advantage the Eltham Ridge Medical Centre offers for those in the Templestowe/Eltham area is they bulk bill. The obvious advantage if you need a medical certificate for work is the out-of-pocket saving. Most doctors in the area are now charging around $60 for a consultation and the Medicare rebate is only around $35. That’s a saving of around $25 and quite a bit of time saved going to a Medicate office to the rebate back.

I don’t know of any other medical centre in the area which bulk bills. The others that used to bulk bill in the area have since ceased to bulk bill everyone and now just bulk bill only certain patients.

This post is not an endorsement of Eltham Ridge Medical Centre. It only points out they bulk bill if that is of use to others.
