Do I need a referral?
As per Medicare requirements generally a referral is required every 12 months if obtained from GP or Optometrist, and 3 months if it is obtained from a Specialist
Although every effort is made to remind patients of referrals, it is ultimately the patients responsibility to obtain one
What to bring to an appointment
- Medicare card, Pension or Health Care Cards, Private Health Insurance Details
- A valid referral if required
- A list of your current medication
- Your current glasses
