FAQs + Fees
- Does RFM bulk bill?
No, RFM is a private billing practice. We do not believe it is possible to provide an excellent service and maintain our staff, for the cost of the Medicare rebate alone.
We do however bulk bill all Childhood Immunisations and INR testing. If you are under financial pressure, please discuss this with your doctor.

For current patient’s of the Practice, you can book online via Hot Doc’s by clicking the Book Now tab on the Website, or you can give us a call on 02 6936 2088 and chat to our friendly staff.
For all New Patients, please give our staff a call on 02 6936 2088.
- What is RFMs communication policy regarding results?
At various times, your doctor will order tests for you such as blood tests, swabs, pap smears or X-Rays, as is appropriate to your care.
These results can take a little while to be returned to us. Once the result is available, your doctor will review them and will make an appropriate comment on the computer. Our staff will then endeavour to contact patients who have an abnormal result or require follow up of some sort, and will read the doctors’ message to you. In urgent cases, your doctor may ring himself/herself.
As you can imagine, each doctor will order many tests each day, so we rarely get an opportunity to ring patients for normal results. It is important that if you have not heard from us, that you ring the surgery to double check that your result is normal, because occasionally results do get missed, or are not returned properly by pathology etc, or perhaps we have been unable to contact you. It is also extremely important for this reason to ensure that your contact details are always up to date on our records.
Your doctor will let you know how long your test results are likely to take to come back.

- Is there a cancellation fee?
No cancellation fee applies when your appointment is cancelled in a timely manner. We understand that sometimes life happens and you cannot attend. Simply cancel online through your appointment reminder or give us a call to reschedule.
If however, you do not attend for an appointment on two occasions without cancelling or contacting us, there will be a fee charged. We often have patients on waiting lists who could have made good use of the time, so please contact us if you are not able to attend so that we may offer the time to someone else.
