Why is there a difference between the practice fee and the Medicare rebate?
Our fees are based on the actual cost of providing care for you. The government’s indexation of Medicare rebates has not kept pace with the rising costs of medical practice. As a result, Medicare rebates do not reflect the real cost of your care.
Surgery fees & charges
As part of informed financial consent, our receptionist will provide you with a quote for the expected fee for your surgery. Medicare and your private health fund will pay a proportion of the fee for your surgery. The difference between the surgical fee and the combined amount of the Medicare rebate and the benefit your health fund pays is the out of pocket cost or gap.
