Outpatients Visits (Medicare reimbursement)
Although Professor Prince charges less than the recommended AMA rates, you will incur out-of-pocket expenses after the Medicare rebate for your consultation:
We request payment in full on the day of the consultation by credit card, eftpos, cash or cheque.
We can process the lodgement of the Medicare rebate for you on the day;
Any hospital treatments will be charged directly to your private health insurance, as long as you hold a current referral. Please check with your fund for any out-of-pocket expenses.
A current referral is necessary to enable you to claim your Medicare rebate. The referral you have received from your specialist will only last 3 months. Therefore you will need to obtain a 12-month or indefinite referral from your GP.
