Our doctors’ surgical fees are based on the Australian Medical Association (AMA)’s recommended fees. Patients with private health insurance may arrange their treatment as a private patient in a hospital, with the majority of the expenses covered by their health fund. If you are covered by TAC, WorkCover, or Defence there will be no cost to you for any surgery you may have. Health funds may not fully cover doctors' fees and an out of pocket expense of the variance is incurred by the patient. We offer our patients a close assessment of the expenses involved.
