A referral from GP or ED
We can see you without a referral, but it just means you won't get a Medicare rebate.
Xrays or other imaging
All imaging done at I-MED Radiology, Bayside Radiology and Fraser Coast Radiology is easily accessible. If you have had your imaging elsewhere can you please bring the imaging on a disk or hard copies.
A list of your current medications helps us plan any operations.
Medicare and insurance details
A Medicare card allows you to claim back the cost of your consultation. If applicable, please bring the details for:
Despite the significant fees charged by private health insurance companies in Australia, unfortunately Medicare and health funds do not cover the full cost of treatment. This means that there will be an out of pocket expense in order for us to provide the best possible service without compromise. This amount varies on the procedure, health fund and complexity of the case.
For WorkCover patients the consultations are covered. Any surgery will need to be approved, and sometimes needs one further surgical opinion to confirm they will fund this.
For DVA patients specified or complete cover is paid for by Veteran Affairs.
For self funded patients we obtain a quote from the anaesthetist and the hospital before we can give you a complete quote.
We are happy to discuss all aspects of this with you and have an open transparent conversation about pricing.
Our clinic is conveniently located in the St Stephen's Hospital precinct of Hervey Bay. There is a free car park within the 13 Medical Place complex and on the roadside along Medical Place Road.
