Fees and Referrals

Fees

This practice accepts the Gap Cover scheme for most in-hospital procedures, however a patient co-payment is charged commensurate with the degree of difficulty of the surgery which is undertaken.

For your convenience your account will be processed via the Gap Cover scheme if eligible, and an account for the co-payment will be issued to you following your surgery.

We are happy to discuss these fees with you at any stage in the course of your treatment and if the costs involved cause financial difficulties, we are more than happy to discuss ways to overcome this.

Consultations and procedures in the rooms are charged in accordance with the AMA schedule of fees. A Medicare rebate applies.

We are able to accept payment by EFTPOS, credit card, cheque or cash. Credit card payments can also be made over the telephone.

Referrals

To enable you to claim the cost of your visit from Medicare, you must have a current referral. It is the responsibility of the patient to ensure that this requirement has been met.

If your referral is from another specialist, it is only valid for three months. Referrals issued by a general practitioner remain current for 12 months or longer if specified.

Overseas patients, who are not eligible for Medicare rebate, do not require a referral.
