Enrolled Patient fees

 

Doctor Consultations

The fees listed are guideline only. They are the doctors fees usually charged for our standard 15 minute consultation. Please advise us if you require a longer appointment – an additional fee applies. There may also be extra charges for materials used or additional services.
Please ask us for a quote for minor surgical procedures as prices vary depending on procedure.
Some health services available at Cashmere Health are provided by independent providers who have their own fee schedule.
The table of fees shows our standard GP consultation fee for enrolled and funded patients in the different age groups subsidised by the Government.
0-13 years                     Free
13-17 years                   $42
over 18 years                $50

Please note patients not enrolled at Cashmere Health will pay a higher consultation fee.

Effective from 1 October 2018.
Enrolment is where you choose to make us your regular doctor. We arrange for your medical notes to be transferred from your previous doctor, along with the local health authority (PHO) funding. This means you can then get the subsidized consultation fees. Not everyone is eligible for enrolment. The Ministry of Health website has a guide to eligibility criteria (www.moh.govt.nz/eligibility). The eligibility of non-New Zealand residents for publicly funded health care depends on their work visa status.
