Invoices, Payment and Policies

Medical excess

The medical excess is a payment that may have to be made by your patient for initial medical services outside of a hospital, up to an indexed amount per annum such as doctor or physiotherapy consultations.

Once this excess has been reached, a GP can invoice the TAC for consults with a TAC client.

Medical Excess policy


The TAC can pay the reasonable costs of medical services provided by a medical practitioner to a client.


To ensure invoices are processed promptly GPs are encouraged to adhere to the TAC's published guidelines and include the requested information about the client, their details and the service provided.

Before invoicing for a service provided to a client, please ensure that the client has an accepted TAC claim.
