Whilst every effort will be made to make an accurate estimate, additional costs may be incurred. This may be due to decisions made by your doctor about your treatment, procedures or length of surgical time.
Any balance outstanding will be billed to you for payment.
PRIVATELY INSURED PATIENTS
Your Informed Financial Consent will provide you with an estimate of your health fund rebate and any out-of-pocket expenses not covered by your health fund.
If you have any questions concerning the estimated refund, we suggest you contact your private health insurer prior to admission.

Prostheses (implanted medical devices) are devices are implanted during surgery.
The Commonwealth Government provides a schedule of how prostheses are reimbursed. This means you may have an out-of-pocket fee if your doctor chooses a prosthesis that attracts a gap payment, or if you are uninsured.
Please discuss this with your doctor or health fund (privately insured patients), prior to your admission.
