According to 2016 census results, there are approximately 32,113 people living in Bankstown. It is a vibrant, cosmopolitan, and relatively young suburb, with an average age of 32 years.
There are slightly more females living there, than male, and 85% of residents are either immigrants, or children of immigrants. Apart from English, the most commonly spoken languages are Arabic, Vietnamese, Mandarin, Urdu and Cantonese.
Not only is the Bankstown population younger, there is also more single parents than surrounding areas. This financial strain on families is supported through bulk billed medical services and the Child Dental Benefits Schedule. Both initiatives are supported by our doctors here at Advanced Health Medical Centre, and you will receive the best medical care, even if you are being bulk billed.
To further add value to Bankstown residents, our practice includes both doctors and support staff who as well as English, can speak Arabic, Vietnamese and Cantonese – a service that is especially helpful for our patients.
What is Bulk-Billing?
For bulk-billed services, Medicare cardholders are not charged for their doctor’s visit, instead, the practice will charge at the Medicare benefit rate, and pass on the cost to the government.
It is important to know that Advanced Health Medical Centre is a mixed billing practice and not all our doctor’s bulk bill. If you have any questions about billing arrangements for specific doctors, please contact us directly.
