We recommend that you make contact with our patient accounts staff for a written estimate of costs and, if applicable, apply for ‘prior approval’ from your Health Insurer. By doing so, you will be more aware of what cover is available to you, as well as the possible shortfall that you may need to pay yourself.
The estimate we will give you will be based on current average costs and will comprise:
Please remember these will only be estimates. They may be higher or lower than the actual amounts you are finally charged, if your particular treatment has been more or less complex than ‘average’.
Our actual costs are charged on an ‘as used’ basis (unless a fixed price fee is applicable) and can vary significantly from patient to patient, even for the same procedure.
As well as the hospital account, you will receive separate accounts from your anaesthetist, surgeon and/or physician. If you have received radiology during your stay, their charges will be invoiced separately to you.
Physiotherapy and occupational therapy charges are included in the hospital invoice.
Many insurance companies will not cover the cost of an occupational therapist’s consultation fee, estimated to be between $50 and $100. You should discuss this with your insurance company prior to your admission.
