AGPA Webinar

Transition to Private Billing

Presented by: AGPA


Dr Trish Baker, Dr Bernard Shiu, Dr Mukesh Haikerwal, and Dr Richard Barker


Since 2010 health costs have increased at about 5% per year. MBS funding has increased by about 0.5%. This has put significant pressure on Practice viability.

Many Practices that were traditionally bulk billing or mixed billing Practices have started or are considering moving away from their previous billing model.  We have asked four Practice owners to participate in a panel discussion to discuss how they approached the key components of the transition.

  • Conversations with/ information for patients
  • Conversations with and information and support for contract GPs
  • Support for reception staff and practice managers
  • Support for practice nurses and allied health team members

The focus of the evening will be a view of enhancing Practice viability and managing all of the components that will be impacted by the change. The intention is that you will be able to ask the panel questions and contribute your own experience.


Places will be limited, preference will be given to AGPA members.
