A fee will be charged for your anaesthetic service and this fee is separate from fees charged by any other doctors (e.g your surgeon) or any other costs associated with your stay in hospital. This fee is dependent upon a variety of factors including the duration of your anaesthetic, the complexity of your procedure, your age and physical status. You may be able to claim a rebate from Medicare and your private health fund but in most cases, these rebates will cover only part of your anaesthetic fee and there will be a 'gap'. You are responsible for payment of the ‘gap’. The gap will vary according to the level of cover you have with your health fund.
We encourage you to contact us as soon as possible to obtain an estimate of your anaesthetic fees and the expected rebates. It is not generally possible for our staff to provide an estimate over the phone due to all the variables including your health fund and the procedure you are having done. Our website is the fastest way for you to obtain this information and we can usually return the estimate to you the same business day (Monday to Friday).

An itemised anaesthetic account will be issued a week or so after your procedure. If you are an overseas patient or if you are self-funded, we will contact you prior to your procedure to arrange prepayment of your anaesthetic fee.
Your anaesthetic account can be paid via credit card, direct deposit, cheque or money order. All payment options will be included on your itemised account.
