Introducing Free Kids’ Membership & Pricing Update

Kids under 16 are soon to be free at Evercare!

Starting July 1st, Evercare is introducing a FREE Kids’ Health Membership for children aged 0-15 years old when they are added to a paying adult membership. This means that existing members with children under 16 on your account will be charged $0 membership fee from July 1st 2024! Additionally, any children added to an adult membership account from this date will also enjoy a free membership!

Our free kids’ membership, will make Evercare even more affordable for families and still provides all of the amazing Evercare benefits including fast access to unlimited GP appointments, access to nurse support from 7:30am – 7:30pm, a handy app to manage appointments, scripts and documents, and fast requests to your care team. Children under 16 will be bulk billed at the time of their appointment.

Other pricing changes:

In addition to this exciting update, we have made some other pricing changes which will take effect as of the 1st August 2024 as follows:
· We are introducing a young adult membership at $22 a month for people aged 16-20 years old.
· Adult dependents membership will change to $45 a month
· We are implementing a $20 reactivation fee for past members who want to un-pause their membership.

There will be no price change for membership for adults, concession card holders or DVA at this stage. This will be reviewed on a regular basis in line with our cost of delivery.

We have included a summary table below to illustrate the price differences:

The free kids’ pricing will start from the 1st July and the changes to Young adults and Adult dependents will take place from 1st August 2024 along with the reactivation fee.

All patients (other than kids under 16), will be charged an appointment fee, equal to the standard Medicare rate, at the time of their consultation which will be reimbursed 100% directly by Medicare*, leaving you with no gap fees standard consultations.

These changes are helpful to bring the pricing inline with Medicare’s age settings and we believe they will help families to ensure their children can receive priority medical care.

Evercare does encourage each adult to have their own membership and app log in so if you are an adult or young adult and wish to have your own log in, please contact us and we can assist.

We’re introducing a membership reactivation fee which is designed to ensure that continuous members receive the best value from their Evercare membership. While all 16+ members pay a set monthly fee as outlined above, the reactivation fee encourages continuous membership by providing another incentive for uninterrupted service. This helps us to maintain consistent and efficient service delivery, ensuring that our members have seamless access to all the benefits Evercare offers.

We look forward to continuing to support our patients and their families on their health journey!
