Private Health Insurance

Private Health Insurance allows you and your family to access the right health services at the right time. You have control of your health care and can choose the provider, facility and timing of your treatment. With the security and protection of private health insurance, you have access to an extensive range of private hospitals and can rest assured that your health is in good hands.

Depending on your level of cover, some health funds also require you to pay an excess. We are not responsible for these costs but our staff will do their utmost to guide you to better understanding.

Our practice accepts most private health insurance programs. Our staff can also help with your claim for benefits, but we remind you that your specific policy is an agreement between you and your insurance company.

Please keep in mind that you are responsible for your total obligation should your insurance benefits result in less coverage than anticipated.

Your policy may base its allowances on a fixed fee schedule, which may or may not coincide with the AMA fee schedule.

You should be aware that different insurance companies vary greatly in the types of coverage available. Also, some companies take care of claims promptly while others delay payment for several months.

No Private Health Insurance

If you are not in a Private Health Fund or DVA and you need surgery, you have two alternatives:

  1. Go on a Waiting List at the Public Hospital, or
  2. Pay for the operation yourself ("Self-Insure")

The care in the public hospital is free of charge to you.

No Health Insurance

Patients may be able to choose private admission even if they do not have private health insurance. Self-funded patients will be liable to pay the following:

  • The gap between the Medicare benefit and any specialist’s charge
  • The gap for diagnostic services (medical imaging and laboratory), however some of these services may be bulk billed to Medicare, that is no ‘gap’
  • Hospital accommodation fees (bed charge)
  • Surgically implanted prostheses

Essentially this means you must meet all costs of the admission yourself except those covered by Medicare.
