    I hope someone can help. It might be worth trying the children's hospital. In Melbourne, I don't know of any private paed who bulk bills for everything (I know one that bulk bills for immunizations and allergy testing, but you already have to be a fully paying patient) but lots of people access pediatricians through children's and other major hospitals. Don't forget if you do find a private one, you will need a specialist referral from you GP.
    Good luck!!

    I'm in Brisbane & I don't think there are any private Peds that bulk bill for consults. You can get a referral for a public one from your GP.

    Hi, I work at MCH in South Brisbane and I'm not aware of one that does. In saying that, there may be one I'm not aware of. Although, Medicare do overnight payments so you would only be short $$ one day if you went straight in to claim your rebate. I've met my EMSN and only was only about $15 OOP for my private paed the other day. Would it be possible that you may have reached yours?

    There's nothing stopping you from calling Paed and gently asking that you are bulk billed due to whatever circumstances etc...it's at their discretion.
