The standard fee charged in this office for reconstructive surgery is somewhere between the medicare schedule fee and the Australian Medical Association recommended fee. This means that in most instances there will be a small component of your surgical fee which will not be covered by Medicare and your health fund. If there is any problem with this it is important that you ask about this gap. With respect to cosmetic surgery, some of the operations will receive a benefit from your insurer whilst others will not. We are able to give you the appropriate advice on all these matters and give you some exact estimates of what the final costs might be.
Please be advised that when you have an operation, not only is there a fee for your attending surgeon and his assistant, but also for the anaesthetist and the hospital.
Our staff are fully informed with charges and rebates and will be able to help you navigate your way through this area of your procedure.
Fees will be reviewed with you at the consultation visit. Payment during the consultation is appreciated. Payment is required prior to your scheduled date of surgery.
Bank cheque, cash or credit cards (MasterCard and VISA) are acceptable means of payment.
Insurance will only cover medical treatments. Cosmetic treatments are not covered.
