Dr Stephen Allison will bill your health fund directly for your procedure. There is a booking fee for every procedure, which is not rebatable and is an out-of-pocket expense, which you will be notified of with a financial consent form at the time of booking a procedure. It is important to understand that your health fund contract is for hospital fees not medical fees.
Fees for anaesthesia, pathology, radiology or any other service provider required while you are in hospital are separate from Dr Stephen Allison’s fees.
Hospital fees are rebatable through your health fund. You are advised to check what cover you have and any excess you may need to pay on admission with you health fund prior to admission.
Uninsured patients will be provided with a quote for Dr Allison’s services prior to any procedure or operation. This is payable prior to admission.
A quote can be obtained by the clinic on your behalf for hospital expenses including accommodation fees, theatre fees and prosthetic fees. This will be sent to you from the hospital and a copy will be attached to Dr Allison’s quote also as a courtesy. This fee is separate from Dr Stephen Allison’s fee, it is a contract between you and the hospital and will be payable on admission to the hospital. The hospital will not collect Dr Allison’s fee.
