We will always endeavour to provide a written estimate for the surgical fee and any associated out-of-pocket expense (known gap) applicable.

Patient fees

All patients will receive an account for professional services. Accounts are itemised at a level within the guidelines recommended by the Australian Medical Association (AMA).

The AMA recommends a fee schedule based on what is fair and reasonable, however patients are advised that these may be beyond the standard rebate provided by Medicare and their medical health insurance.

Appropriate fee reductions may be made for full pension recipients, and those with significant financial hardship.

All patients will receive an account at the time of consultation, and payment can be made through credit card, EFTPOS, cheque or cash.

No-gap and known gap health insurance arrangements
Malvern Proctology & Colonoscopy does participate in these arrangements and, when appropriate, will endeavour to provide a written estimate for the surgical fee and any associated out-of-pocket expense (known gap) applicable, one week prior to the proposed procedure.
