Are there any out of pocket expenses or gap payments for surgery for private patients?

The practice charges fees for surgical procedures in accordance with those recommended by the Australian Medical Association.  This involves a modest out of pocket or ‘gap’ payment over and above the reimbursement by the health insurance fund.  There may also be out of pocket expenses charged by the anaesthetist.  An estimate of the likely costs of the surgery will be provided by the practice manager at the time of initial consultation.
