Patients are able to claim a rebate from Medicare for their consultation. To be eligible for a rebate at the specialist rate a current referral is required from your optometrist or general practitioner. A discount is given to patients who choose to settle their account on the day of consultation, a further discount is also given to patients who hold a current Pensioner Health Benefits card. Bulk Billing is not routinely offered to patients.
Our surgeons are all registered “No Gap” providers and in most instances patients with private health insurance who are admitted to hospital will have no out of pocket cost for their surgical procedure. Uninsured patients will receive a rebate from Medicare and are required to settle the balance of their account promptly.
If you are uncertain of the costs involved with your procedure please contact us for an estimate of the costs likely to be incurred.
