Estimates 


You should always obtain an estimate from our office so you are aware of all the costs involved before your operation.
Although the exact fee for your anaesthetic will not be determined until your operation is complete it is possible to give you a close estimate before surgery.

 

Anaesthetist

Please download the “ESTIMATION OF MEDICAL FEES – ANAESTHESIA” form and fill out all the information prior to contacting our office by phone, fax or email. It is most important for you to know the length of your operation. We will then contact you and give you an estimate.

 

Assistant Surgeon

Please download the “ESTIMATION OF MEDICAL FEES – ASSISTANT SURGEON” form and fill out all the information including the surgeon’s item numbers and cost prior to contacting our office by phone, fax or email. We will then contact you and give you an estimate.

 


Your Account

The anaesthetic fee will be based on a number of factors including the length and complexity of your operation. The fee is in line with the recommendations of the Australia Society of Anaesthetists and the Australian Medical Association.

In some cases you may be asked to pre-pay the full anaesthetic fee. After you have paid for your procedure we can electronically claim on your behalf from Medicare and/or your Health Fund. There are certain procedures (eg cosmetic surgery) which are not covered by either Medicare or your health fund.

Fees for an Assistant Surgeon will be estimated on enquiry and are calculated as a flat fee.

Payments may be made by cash at our office, cheque, B/Pay or Visa/ Mastercard over the telephone.

Medicare & Health Fund Rebates

Medicare and your health fund covers only part of the cost of your anaesthetic services. This amount is fixed by government legislation. Therefore, you will be responsible for the “gap” which is your “out of pocket” amount to pay. Your gap payment is likely to range from around $200 for smaller operations to $1500 or more for larger operations.
