Why has there been a fee change?
While the cost of consultations at the UC Health Centre are subsidised partly by the Student Services Levy, the Ministry of Health (MoH) provides the bulk of the UC Health Centre funding.
MoH recently changed the way it funds primary healthcare services, and the amount of funding they provide for your healthcare at the UC Health Centre now depends on whether you have a Community Services Card.
What this means for you
- If you are enrolled at the UC Health Centre and you have a Community Services Card, most of your GP consultations will continue to be free.
- If you are enrolled at the UC Health Centre and you don’t have a Community Services Card, a $15 fee will apply for every GP consultation.
Apply for a Community Services Card
If you don’t already have a Community Services Card, make sure you apply for one as soon as possible if you are eligible for one.
Visit the Work and Income website for more information about a Community Services Card and how to apply.
