Bulk billing is a payment option under the Medicare system of universal health insurance in Australia. It can cover a prescribed range of health services as listed in the Medicare Benefits Schedule, at the discretion of the health service provider. The health service provider, usually a Doctor is paid the scheduled fee directly by the government by billing the patient via their Medicare card.
Service providers may choose whether or not to use bulk billing. The key purpose of bulk billing is to avoid an economic constraint on medical fees and charges.
