This applies only to procedures that qualify for a Medicare rebate. (Procedures which are solely cosmetic do not qualify)
Generally, the overall fees for surgery includes several components:
- Dr Damon Thomas’ fee which includes the routine post-operative follow-up (six weeks).
- Surgical assistant fee
- The anaesthetist’s fee.
- Costs/theatre fee.
- Pathology (where applicable).
- Others (e.g. cost of implants, prosthesis, etc.).
- For privately insured patients, your private insurance will generally cover part of your surgeon’s fees.
- The remainder, also known as the “gap”, covers the costs of providing specialist healthcare that Medicare and private insurance rebates do not cover.
- The amount of the “gap” varies depending on the nature and complexity of the surgery. In all instances, a written estimate is provided prior to the procedure being scheduled.
- In the case of emergency or out of hours surgery a formal quote if often not possible and an invoice will be forwarded for the surgical and assistant fees after the procedure has been performed
- We would strongly recommend all patients check with their private health fund to establish whether other costs apply.
- For certain cosmetic procedures (e.g. facelifts, lower eyelid surgery), no rebates are provided by either Medicare or your private health fund.
- In these cases, a written estimate will be provided prior to the procedure being scheduled.
Payment is required at the time of consultation.
