Referrals

Referrals to specialists are required if you wish to claim the Medicare rebate for your consultation. Please check that your referral is up-to-date before your visit to a specialist.

An appointment is needed for all new referrals.

When appropriate, referrals for review of the same condition may be provided without a consultation if you have seen the referring doctor within the past 3 months and that there have not been any changes in your information (personal details, symptoms, medication) since your last visit to the specialist. A request can be made through OzDocsOnline services. Please allow 1-2 weeks for the request to be completed.

Note – Referrals cannot be backdated. If a referral is requested on the day of your specialist appointment a fit-in appointment with your usual doctor or another doctor may be offered where possible.
