We accept cash, credit card or EFTPOS for payment of your service. Full payment is required at the time of attendance.
Overall Cost of Surgery (Private Hospital)
Generally, the overall fees for surgery includes several components:
- Dr Han’s fee, which includes the routine post-operative follow up for six weeks. See section below.
- The anaesthetist’s fee.
- An assistant fee (where applicable)
- The hospital or day surgery fee.
- Pathology (where applicable).
- Others: which may include cost of implants, prosthesis, etc.
Surgical Fees (Private Hospital)
For privately insured patients, your private insurance will generally cover part of your surgeon’s fees.
The remainder, also known as the “GAP”, covers for the costs of providing specialist health care where Medicare and private insurance rebates have consistently failed to keep up with inflation.
The amount of the “GAP” varies depending on the nature and complexity of the surgery. In all instances, a written estimate is provided prior to the procedure being scheduled.
We would strongly recommend all patients check with their private health fund to establish whether other costs may apply.
