At  Xplore Radiology we want health care to be accessible and affordable for everyone. We are dedicated to offering Bulkbilled services wherever we can.

When can my MRI be bulk billed?

  1. The radiology provider must have a Medicare licenced MRI machine to be able to bulk bill an MRI exam. Xplore Radiology has a Medicare licensed MRI machine.
  2. Do you hold a Medicare card? You must hold a Medicare card to be eligible.
  3. Is your referral from a specialist? If the answer is yes, then Xplore Radiology will bulk bill your MRI.
  4. Is your referral from a GP? If the answer is yes, then your MRI MAY be able to be bulk billed. There are only a handful of Medicare codes that a GP can refer for and they must include relevant clinical indications on the referral.

These include;

Patients under the age of 16 years

  • Scan of the Head
  • Scan of the Spine following radiographic examination i.e an x-ray
  • Scan of the Knee following radiographic examination i.e an x-ray
  • Scan of the Hip following radiographic examination i.e an x-ray

All other exams may incur a private fee, please enquire with our staff to see if you are eligible.

  • Is your referral from an Allied Health provider, such as a Podiatrist, Chiropractor, Physiotherapist. If the answer is yes, then these exams CANNOT be bulk billed and there will be a private fee.
