OAMS is a bulk-billing service. This means that appointments with the GP are covered under Medicare. This also extends to specialist services that are based out of the Orange AMS, including podiatry, psychology, and hearing. It is important to note here that although OAMS is a bulk-billing service, we cannot guarantee that external referrals to specialists are also bulk-billed and may incur out-of-pocket costs.

Although we ask that you book an appointment, OAMS do provide book on the day appointments for those calling in the morning for an appointment on the day. We also provide a triage nurse who is able to assess a client to see if a review with the doctor is required. We also provide walk in appointments for elders, or young children and babies.

Both Dental and Walu Win are reserved for primary clients of the Orange Aboriginal Medical Service.
