Bulk Billing kids under 12
It is pretty common to get a phone call from the school every few weeks, telling you that your little man or little lady has turned up again, saying something is hurting and as parents we often know when things are minor and to push on, but there are times when all we need is a little reassurance. We need to make sure the cough is not a pneumonia, the ear drum isn't about to burst or the tonsils are just red and not full of a bacterial infection.
At Whole Medicine we know this happens all the time and in the past we didn't have the availability to offer this service to you as our community, but now we do. We want to be there to support you and your family through these mini challenges, because how we teach kids about health when they are sick has been shown to offer long term benefits to health habits in the future. Reiterating good health habits makes all the difference when kids are young and reinforces key message regarding health behaviour and health management.
So we as a team have decided to offer our families Bulk Billing for kids under 12 years of age, for all those acute 'on the day' appointments. We all know, kids get sick often, kids fall over all the time, kids hurt themselves in all sorts of ways. As their little immune systems get stronger, as their coordination and skills start to get better, we will be there for all those time when they bump heads, roll their ankle or cough all the way through the night.
