What is a Gap?
The Department of Human Services Medicare Program provides a financial contribution towards certain medical services, called a rebate. Unfortunately, over the years the Medicare Rebate has not kept up with the costs of running a Private Practice. The Gap is the extra cost on top of the Medicare Rebate that makes up the recommended fee for service, according to the Australian Medical Association. This is an out of pocket expense.
