Your doctor will discuss their fees with you during your consultation, prior to the day of your surgery.
Day surgery patients may receive two accounts; the day surgery facility fee and doctors account will be generated by The Skin Hospital and is payable on admission when the item numbers have been confirmed by your surgeon. If you are having a procedure other than Mohs surgery and a specimen is sent to pathology, a separate account will be sent from the Pathology Department. Usually there is no pathology account for Mohs Surgery.
Day surgery patients will be entitled to a small rebate from Medicare.
If you belong to a private health fund the day surgery account will be sent directly to your health fund (with a completed claim form) and you will be required to pay any policy excess on admission. A member of the reception staff will advise you how much your policy excess is approximately one week prior to surgery.
Cash, EFTPOS, credit cards (except Diners and American Express), bank cheques and money orders are acceptable forms of payment.
