Fees & Payment FAQs
What about your fees?
The standard fee charged in this office for reconstructive surgery is the Australian Medical Association recommended fee. This means that in most instances there will be a moiety of your surgical fee which will not be covered by Medicare and your health fund. If there is any problem with this it is important that you ask about this gap. With respect to cosmetic surgery, some of the operations will receive a benefit from your insurer whilst others will not. We are able to give you the appropriate advice on all these matters and give you some exact estimates of what the final costs might be.
Please be advised that when you have an operation, not only is there a fee for your attending surgeon and his assistant, but also for the anaesthetist and the hospital.
What are your acceptable means of payment?
Fees will be reviewed with you at the consultation visit. Payment during the consultation is appreciated. Payment is required prior to your scheduled date of surgery.
Bank cheques, Bankcard, personal cheques, cash or credit cards (MasterCard, VISA, and American Express) are acceptable means of payment.
Will my insurance cover all your treatments?
Insurance will only cover medical treatments. Cosmetic treatments are not covered.
