Decision to Not Increase Fees in 2013

Dear Patients:

On the 1st of November each year, the Australian Government has traditionally increased Medicare rebates.  This year, the Government does not intend to increase Medicare rebates at all.

We understand that in this difficult financial climate any increase in our fees will place additional strain upon your household budget, so we have decided not to increase our fees in this financial year.  In order to keep our fees unchanged from November 2012 to July 2014, we are asking all of our patients to pay our accounts in full on the day of service.  As you may be aware, many of our patients are already doing this.

Run4Autism Quiz Night

EAHC recently held a quiz night to help raise funds for the Run4Autism Charity. Run4Autism was created by the family of a child with Autism Spectrum Disorder, who wanted to set up a fundraising site to help all Australian Autism organisations. The Quiz Night was a great success, and a total of $5,000 was raised for this charity.
