SOC Fees and Billing
After consultation with your choice of Surgeon, you will be required to pay on the day a standard consultation fee, this fee is the Australian Medical Association (AMA) recommended fee.
Part of your consultation fee will be rebated through Medicare.
Should you require Surgery, part of your surgical fee will be claimable from Medicare and part from your health fund (this amount will vary depending on your level of cover and health fund). In some surgical instances there will be a ‘gap amount’ which is not covered by Medicare or your health fund. It is important for you to contact your surgeon’s receptionist and inquire about this ‘gap amount’ prior to your procedure. At SOC we believe in full informed and full financial consent prior to any operation.
