Fees and Payments

Fees and Payments

Consultation fees vary depending on a number of factors including whether it is your initial consultation or for ongoing follow up and also in circumstances where Dr Farrell may need to perform other procedures (colposcopy, biopsies).

All fees are payable at the time of the consultation and all major credit cards are accepted including American Express. Once your consultation fee is paid in full we can electronically transmit your claim to Medicare on your behalf and the rebate will be deposited into your registered bank account, usually within 24 hours.

Surgical fees charged by this practice are at or below that recommended by the Australian Medical Association (AMA). They reflect the costs associated with running a modern up to date practice and delivering a very high standard of care.

Due to constraints imposed by various private health insurance companies we regret that we cannot routinely participate in gap cover schemes. For all surgical procedures you will be given a written “Informed Financial Consent” prior to your operation which will outline any out of pocket fees charged by our practice.  These fees are separate to any other costs in relation to your surgery including anaesthetic fees and your hospital excess.
