Surgery

All minor skin surgery performed attracts a differing item number, and accordingly a differing rebate through Medicare. Please ask your doctor PRIOR to any surgery to discuss approximate costs involved with this service. Please note that it is only an estimate, as we rely on the results of the histopathology, that is, the testing of the skin, to determine what item number is to be charged. Non skin surgery, such as implanon insertion, also attract differing item numbers. Again, please discuss with your doctor PRIOR to surgery about approximate costs.

Please bear in mind that these item numbers are only a guide as they are our most frequently used consult items. Differing item numbers may be charged according to what is required. The item number charged not only represents the time involved with a patient, but also the complexity of the issue. If you are unsure as to what type of appointment you require, please enquire with the reception staff.
These item numbers and their prices can be discussed with your doctor or with reception staff. 
If you wish to discuss the billings further, please write to Dr Sabina Obermeder, the Practice Principal. 
 
Please note that all fees must be paid in full on the day. We do NOT provide accounts. 
 
We also have the Medicare system, EasyClaim, which allows us to electronically process your Medicare rebate into your bank account, which saves you a visit to Medicare. Please ask reception staff for further information. If you have provided Medicare with the appropriate information, please let staff know prior to billing so we can arrange your rebate. Please see the below Medicare website for more information:
