Billing

Patients will be given an estimate of cost at the time of booking. Pension, Health Care and DVA card holders will be Bulk Billed for services for general diagnostic imaging.

Our reception team lodge Medicare claims electronically, so that Medicare rebates are automatically sent to your nominated bank account.

All patients are required to settle their accounts on the day of service, unless otherwise organised with our team prior to your services, the following methods of payment are accepted:

  • Cash
  • Personal Cheque
  • EFTPOS and;
  • Major Credit Cards (VISA, Mastercard)
Patients referred by TAC, Workcover and Veteran Affairs are welcomed, however patients must provide a pre-certification authority and sufficient claim details prior to a radiology service.

 

Financial Consent
A medical gap (or out-of-pocket cost) is the difference between your medical imaging service fee and the combined amount of the Medicare rebate and the benefit your private health insurer will pay for a medical service. Government Medicare rebates have not kept pace with the increasing costs of delivering treatment. Although Medicare will cover part of the fees for most Medical Imaging scans and procedures, there will be a gap which you are required to pay

Our reception staff will advise you of the price of your appointment and gap which you will be liable for. You will be asked to agree to this gap prior to your appointment.

TAC, WorkCover and Veteran Affair referrals are welcome, however the necessary paperwork and/or claim details must be provided prior to your scan
