Dr Tang’s Practice charges fees for consultations and procedures in accordance with the recommendation of the Australian Medical Association (AMA). You will receive rebates from Medicare and/or your Private Health Funds, but there will be some out of pocket expenses for services provided.
A major portion of your surgical costs will be covered by your private health fund. In general, fees vary depending on the complexity of your surgery. At your pre-operative consultation, Dr Tang will provide an estimated quote based on the likely findings and procedure(s) required. However, the actual findings at the time of surgery may vary, and actual costs may vary according to the actual procedure required.
No additional fees are payable for inpatient consultations during your hospital stay following surgery.
After discharge from hospital, you will require a post-operative follow-up visit in the rooms. Dr Tang will discuss your operative findings and procedure in detail with you, as well as the final results of the histopathology.
