Following medicare changes on 1 August 2020, NOT all tests can be bulk billed or medicare rebated. If you meet medicare criteria, you are eligible for bulk billing (if a pensioner) or a substantial medicare rebate (non pensioner, health care card holder).
If the test is not eligible for a rebate through medicare, payment will be required for the tests as outlined below in the fee schedule. This is generally the case for patients without symptoms (except diabetics), for screening and for workplace clearance or commercial license renewal. Tests not eligible for medicare can NOT legally be bulk billed or rebated to the patient. We apologise, but these changes are initiated by government, apply to all cardiologists and are outside our control.
Follow up visits immediately after tests are only rebatable through medicare if management decisions or changes are made at the time of that consultation. Visits that are simply to relay results or allay concerns UNFORTUNATELY are no longer rebatable through medicare.
Please see charges for each specific practice location in the sub menu below
I am a NO GAP provider for most inpatient hospital procedures. This means most work performed in hospital will be covered by your health fund without out of pocket expenses (provided your policy includes cover for cardiac care).
The very best private hospital care, without additional charges.
