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.

 

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. The anaesthetist's 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/ Insurer to claim your rebate.

 

You will receive separate quotations for the Hospital Fee and Anaesthetist's Fee.

 

**Please be advised that there is a possibility of further un-forseen 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.
