It is highly recommended that all patients contact their health fund once they have received their quote to ensure they are covered for surgery.

Surgical Fees

Your surgery may be performed either under local anaesthetic (awake) or general anaesthetic (asleep). Local anaesthetic surgery is performed here in our main rooms and a general anaesthetic is performed in a hospital where a hospital admission is required.

Local Anaesthetic Fees include:

  1. Surgical Fee (made available at your consultation)
  2. Local Anaesthetic facility fee
  3. Pharmacy fee – for your antibiotic and pain relief script
  4. Pathology fee – if a specimen is sent to pathology

 

General Anaesthetic fees include:

  1. Surgical fee (made available at your consultation)
  2. Hospital fee (see below)
  3. Anaesthetic fee (see below)
  4. Pharmacy Fee – for your antibiotic and pain relief script
  5. Pathology fee – if a specimen is sent to pathology

 

Surgical Fee (Dental) – Your surgical quote is provided at your consultation. You will be quoted “dental” item numbers, which mean you will only be covered by your “dental extras” on your health fund. Please note that there will be an out-of-pocket expense for your surgery even with private health insurance. Dental Item Numbers are not covered by Medicare.

Unfortunately we cannot provide quotes over the phone for any procedure apart from the extraction of four (4) wisdom teeth. There are several different item numbers that can be used for extractions, depending on the difficulty of the teeth to be extracted; this is determined by the doctor at your consultation. 

            Extraction of four wisdom teeth is approximately, $1800 – $1900. 

 

Surgical Fee (Medical) – You will receive your informed financial consent (IFC) at your consultation appointment. Your IFC will have the doctor’s fee and what your rebated amount will be from both Medicare and your health fund. – If you have your “Medical” procedure done in our rooms under local anaesthetic, you will only be covered by Medicare; as Private Health does not cover for anything outside of a hospital setting.

Hospital fee – If you have private health insurance then the hospital fee will either be your excess or co-payment that you may have on your level of cover. You will need to contact your health fund to find out this information. If you do not have private health insurance then there will be an out-of-pocket expense for the hospital, you will need to obtain a quote from them after your consultation.

Anaesthetic fee – If you have chosen to have your surgery under a general anaesthetic you will also be under the care of a specialist anaesthetist. After your consultation you will be provided with the details of the anaesthetist; from there you will be able to obtain a quote from them. Generally speaking you can expect to be out-of-pocket approx. $400-$600.

 

Please note that our Doctors do not participate in the “No Gap” or “known Gap” incentive and there will always be an out-of-pocket fee. 

The fees quoted above are estimates only and are subject to change depending on your individual case 

 

Department of Veterans’ Affairs patients will have no out of pocket costs once approval is obtained from the Department of Veterans’ Affairs.
