Surgical Procedures in PRIVATE Hospitals
For Insured Patients
1. Surgeon's Fee
Fees vary for each procedure and will be discussed at your consultation.
Your private health insurance and Medicare Australia will cover the majority of the Surgeon's fees.
However, there may be a ‘Gap Fee’ (out-of-pocket) payable to Mr Alex Wong, of up to $500.
2. Hospital Fee
Private hospitals may require payment depending on your level of insurance cover. Please check with the hospital at the time of admission.
3. Anaesthetic Fee
Fees vary for each procedure. Your private health insurance and Medicare Australia will cover part of the Anaesthetic fees. However, often there is a ‘Gap Fee’ payable to the nominated anaesthetist. Their office will provide you a quote.
4. Pathology and Radiology Services
Any blood tests, biopsy and/or surgical specimens and scans related to your admission / procedure will be sent for analysis and reporting. You will receive an invoice from the respective pathology/ radiology service.
For Medicare-Eligible, Non-insured Patients
It is not encouraged but it is possible to have your procedure done at a Private Hospital. We can arrange a quotation of Surgeon's Fee, where the full amount is payable PRIOR to the procedure date. Our office will issue you a receipt after the procedure which you can submit to Medicare to claim your rebate.
You will receive separate quotations for the Hospital Fee and Anesthetic Fee.
**Please be advised that there is a possibility of further unforseen costs if your admission is prolonged or if you require additional procedures than what was planned. The total cost can be larger than expected and could become a financial burden.
Surgical Procedures in PUBLIC Hospitals
For Medicare-Eligible, Non-insured Patients and Insured Patients
There is no 'Gap Fee' applicable to all patients. However, no guarantee can be provided that Mr Alex Wong will perform the procedure. Your preferred date of procedure may not always be accommodated due to the nature of the public hospital waiting list.

initial appointment and

It is recommended that you see your General Practitioner and request a referral letter addressed to Mr Alex Wong for 12 months or an indefinite period. A valid referral will allow
Mr Wong to review your progress for as long as it is deemed necessary.
