Regardless of the length of the appointment time actually given, you are responsible for the full fee of the booked appointment time allocated as this time was reserved for you

 

Payment of Invoices Policy

Full payment of your invoice is payable at the time of consultation and treatment

If you are a WorkSafe Victoria client or a client who has a care package that is payable by the provider who is managing your package, for example NDIS, you are only required to pay your out-of-pocket portion

If an invoice remains unpaid for seven (7) business days, a letter is sent requesting immediate payment and if such payment is not received, the invoice maybe forwarded onto a collection agency

Pre-payment for any future consultations and treatments may be requested when booking appointment(s)

If you choose to be placed on the waiting list for a particular day and/or time, you will receive a SMS advising of last minute availability

Upon receiving this SMS, you have 2hrs in which to respond ‘yes’ or ‘no’

If no SMS response is received within the 2hrs, then the next client on the waiting list is informed of last minute availability

 

Confirmation of an appointment is acknowledgement of these policies
