Consultations in our consulting rooms are out of hospital medical services (also known as outpatient), therefore Health funds are not permitted to pay any benefits. There is, however, a Medicare rebate but this will not cover the full cost of the consultation and there will be a gap.
The fees for our consultations are:
Initial Consultation $200 on which you will receive a Medicare rebate of $80.85
Review Consultation $100 on which you will receive a Medicare rebate of $40.65
Pathology & Imaging
You may be required to obtain X-Rays/ MRIs/ CT Scans or other images and/ or blood tests (pathology). These will be charged for by whichever provider you choose.
Please consult with your Health Fund to confirm whether you are covered or will be required to pay.
