Private fees are payable for consultations. Aged Pension card holders and Health Care card holders receive a discount on the gap fee. DVA Gold card holders do not incur any out of pocket expenses for consultations, biopsies or excisions.
Additional gap fees apply if further procedures, for example skin biopsies, cryotherapy of sun spots, injections, skin cancer surgery and patch testing are done.
Private medical insurance does not cover the out of pocket expenses that are payable for consultations and the procedures performed at our clinics.
Payment for excision of benign tumours or skin cancers is made when you return for removal of sutures.
Following excision of benign tumours or skin cancers, at the time of follow-up consultation for wound review, removal of sutures, and discussion of results, there is no consultation fee, unless consultation for another skin problem takes place.
Following a skin biopsy that is done to establish a diagnosis of a skin problem, there is a fee payable for the follow-up consultation which involves discussion of results and formulation of a management plan.
