Medicare is your insurance, and it helps to think of them as an insurance company. We all pay for Medicare through taxes and levies.
Just like private insurance, Medicare does not always cover 100% of the costs of the care you need. When this happens, there is a 'gap' or out-of-pocket cost. The Medicare system requires you to pay the full fee, then provides an instant* refund of their contribution. The difference between those two figures is the 'gap'.
People with insurance other than Medicare must approach their insurer directly for any rebate.

*Rebates cannot be placed on a credit card; instant transfer of Medicare rebates require a card with a cheque or savings option.
Procedures, treatments and investigations performed in our modern, well-equipped treatment room attract a facility fee. This fee covers the cost of resources involved in providing these treatments. Facility fees constitute your total cost on the day of your treatment; the consultation and any other fees are bulk-billed to Medicare. Please ask reception for the full list.
