Cranbourne Medical Fees & Costs
GP Consultations, by and large, are bulk billed at Cranbourne. There is an out of pocket cost, however, for procedures, from skin surgery to biopsies We’ll discuss those costs as part of your consultation with your doctor.
We do also charge a private fee for any driver’s licence fitness assessment, as well as aviation medical assessment. For cosmetic procedures, you’ll enjoy free consultations, and we’ll privately bill the procedures. And work cover consultations get billed right to the insurer (unless the claim number isn’t yet made available, and then it’s a private consult billing).

Flu Vaccination 2022
We are pleased to announce that we have the 2022 flu vaccines in stock at Cranbourne Medical and Skin Clinic. We encourage everyone to ring to book in for flu vaccine and don’t make online appointments.
The flu or influenza is a highly infectious viral disease that can lead to severe illness and life-threatening complications once contracted. It is normally spread by respiratory droplets when an infected person coughs or sneezes.
The data from ABS show that the flu causes more than 3,000 deaths and 18,000 hospitalisations in Australia each year. The flu may give rise to the following symptoms: fever, muscle and joint pain, body ache, extreme exhaustion, tiredness, chills, sore throat and a stuffy nose.
Immunisation provides a very effective protection against getting and spreading the flu. Yearly flu vaccination is recommended because the virus is constantly mutating, and the vaccine changes accordingly every year.
Who are eligible for a free flu vaccine?
In accordance with The Australian Government’s National Immunisation Program, free flu vaccines are available to the following group of people:
- People aged 65 and older

In the wake of COVID 19, we advise everyone to consider getting flu vaccination done. The flu shot does not offer protection against COVID19, however, it will help minimise the spread of the flu in the community and keep the vulnerable individuals safe during Australian winter months. Please be strict with social distancing measures, hand hygiene and personal protective measures.
- Certain individuals with chronic diseases may qualify for Medicare Enhance Primary Care (EPC). They may be able to attract Medicare rebate, so please check with your doctor if you have diabetes, heart disease, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, obesity, or other chronic conditions.
- Private health funds may make Individual consults claimable for rebate. Please verify for eligibility with your private health fund.
