We understand that accounts is another important factor to most people when needing to see a specialist. That’s why we make every effort to get all information so we can give patient’s full disclosure of their likely costs for consultations, in room treatments and also surgical costs.
When you come to visit with on of our gynecologists for the first time you will be charged for an initial consultation. This initial consultation is rebatable from Medicare. Payment of initial consultations are payable on the day. We have eftpos facilities available and we can then direct claim from Medicare for your rebate. If you have your bank details lodged with Medicare you will get the funds back into your account within 24-48 hours. If you do not have your bank details lodged with Medicare then they will send you a cheque.
Any further consultations will be a subsequent consultation fee and also rebatable from Medicare.
If your appointment is urgent in nature, make sure you advise us of this so we can look at booking you in as soon as possible. Sometimes it is asked that your GP forward us an ‘Urgent Request for Appointment’ or alternatively your GP can contact our doctors’ directly. N.B. We will always triage all urgent appointments.
Surgical procedure’s require mandatory Estimate of Fee’s and the out of pocket expenses you will incur. When you book for your surgery we will provide you with an Estimate.
What Does My Health Fund Cover?
Your private health insurance will only come into effect if you have to have surgery in a Private hospital. You will be advised of this through our Estimate if you have to have surgery.
