There is a lot of terminology that gets thrown around these days and it can get really confusing for patients.

Bulk bill is a term often heard when visiting your local GP. This means that the bill is sent directly to Medicare and there is no charge to the patient.

At our office, we cannot bulk bill as Medicare does not pay towards dental care.

No gap is a term which means there is no charge to you once we claim from your private health fund. In general, your private health fund will not cover your bill 100% - they may only pay 30 - 90%. The difference between our charge and the amount covered by the health fund is the 'gap' also known as the 'out of pocket' charge. If we charge you at 'no gap', that means we have discounted the out of pocket expense to you.
