Community Service Cards

Having a Community Services Card will not reduce the cost of your doctors visits if you are an enrolled patient with us as the government already fully subsidises visits at the medical centre where you are enrolled.

If, however, you have to visit a medical centre where you are not enrolled your Community Services Card will make a difference to the cost. (Casual visits are much more expensive than the enrolled cost and this is when it helps to present your Community Services Card.)

Even though it does not reduce your medical costs with us we still keep your community services card number on file as it affects the way government funding is distributed and it is beneficial to have this on your record.
