At CBCHS, our fees vary depending on the type of service or program you receive and, in some cases, your level of income.

As a not-for-profit organisation funded by Government, some of our services are free while others require a fee. Low cost services apply for Health Care and Pension Card holders.

While clients are expected to pay the nominated fee, no one will be denied a service due to an inability to pay. Free services are available to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

Please contact 8587 0200 for further information on our fees.
