Frequently Asked Questions
Insurance & Medicare
What about your fees?
The standard consultation fee charged in this office is the Australian Medical Association recommended fee. This means that in most instances there will be a part of your consultation that will not be covered by Medicare. We Participate in 'Gap Cover' for surgeries. This means there is a reduced out of pocket expense not covered by your health fund for surgical procedures. If there is any problem with this it is important that you ask about this gap. Our staff are fully informed with changes and rebates and will be able to help you navigate you way through this area of your procedure.
What are your acceptable means of payment?
Fees will be reviewed with you at the consultation visit. Payment on the day of consultation is appreciated. Bank cheques, personal cheques, cash, EFTPOS or credit cards (MasterCard, VISA) are acceptable means of payment.
Do I need to have private health insurance?
Private Health insurance allows you and your family to access the right
at the right time. You have control of your health care and can choose the
facility and timing of your treatment. With the security and protection of
private health insurance, you have access to an extensive range of private
hospitals and can rest
assured that your health is in good hands.
