1.a.8. Is the gap between the schedule fee and the actual fee subject to GST?

Non-interpretative – straight application of the law.

The gap will be GST-free if the service is one for which a Medicare benefit is payable. The fact that the amount charged is in excess of the schedule fee will not alter the GST-free status of the service.
