This practice is guided by AMA (Australian Medical Association) fee values and thus there are out-of-pocket costs for
services rendered. A discount is offered for aged pensioners, but we do not bulk bill. Payment for consultation is required
at the time of appointment. All fees are partially recoverable through Medicare. Each consultation is allocated an MBS
(Medicare Benefit Schedule) item number which is dependent on the nature of the appointment, and the actual time and
complexity of the consultation.
Workers Compensation, Third Party and International Insurance patients must provide their insurer details, claim
numbers and case manager details, along with guarantee of payments prior to their appointment. If written guarantee of
payment is not received by the time of the appointment, the patient will be responsible for payment of the consultation at
the time of the appointment, at standard Workers Compensation rates.
If your treatment requires hospital admission, you may choose to be admitted as a private, public or self-insured patient.
Private accounts for surgery are guided by AMA fee values for item numbers used in actual surgery. Therefore only
estimates can be provided for likely out-of-pocket surgical costs. Final costs are dependent on actual surgery performed.
Estimates do not include costs for ancillary services or additional hospital or prosthetic costs. Patients are encouraged to
discuss fee estimates with their health fund providers to ensure adequate hospital and prosthetic cover. Our practice does
not usually participate in no-gap arrangements with health funds.
I accept responsibility for my accounts and agree to the above financial conditions.
