Why are all my DDs appointments free? They told me it was free until she was 16.....

It depends where you go. If you are going to a private practice you can expect to be charged the full price of a consultation (sometimes up to $80) and Medicare will reimburse you for the rebate amount only. If you are going to a bulk billing clinic Medicare can reimburse you for the whole amount of the consult. But as a previous poster said just phone up for your number.

Where does it say kids under 16 are free ?

There is no rule saying children under 16 are free. Its up to the clinic to decide what they charge. Our clinic charges full price for children.
