Yes, many super clinics in Australia bulk billing for general practitioner appointments. Bulk billing is a payment option under the Australian Medicare system, where the doctor bills Medicare directly for the full cost of the service, and the patient does not have to pay out-of-pocket expenses.

The main purpose of super clinics is to provide easily accessible and affordable health care to their local communities so they are usually bulk billing clinics, meaning that they will bulk bill for eligible services or they might advertise themselves as mixed payment medical clinics. Mixed billing simply means that patients are required to pay a gap payment, which is the difference between the practice’s fee and the medicare rebate, rather than the practice absorbing the cost. This gap payment varies from practice to practice.
