Anaesthetic doctor fees are derived from medicare item numbers that reflect the pre-anaesthetic consultation, the anaesthesia required for your particular procedure, the time taken from the start to the finish of your anaesthesia and any extra items related to your condition. Each doctor sets their own fees and billing policies and it is important that you ensure you understand the costs involved.

Prior to your procedure we make every effort to provide an estimate of any out of pocket expenses ('Gap') that you will be required to pay. This amount is only an estimation. The amount may change due to the complexity and length of the procedure.
Medicare and health fund rebates generally do not cover the full costs of private practitioner fees. For most procedures there will be an "out of pocket" expense or "gap" which you will be required to pay.
