Fees and payments


As each doctor charges differently, gaps will vary. It is your responsibility to ask about the fees specific to your doctor; these will also be provided to you in your initial appointment letter. Payment is required in full on the day of treatment. For skype or phone consults where a fee is required, we will contact you the day before your appointment to take payment.

You will be provided with a full quote (informed financial consent) prior to any procedures, as well as when the fees for these are due.

Private patients

If you are attending SA Group of Specialists as a private patient (that is, with private health insurance), you may still have a gap to pay for each of your appointments. This is because if you are seeing a specialist you are classed as an ‘outpatient’ so only Medicare can cover the cost of your appointment, which is 85% of the scheduled fee (set by them).

Uninsured patients

You may wish to seek private treatment despite not having health insurance. In this case, you may still be eligible for a Medicare rebate for your appointments. However, you will be liable for the full costs associated with hospital treatment. We can provide a quote (informed financial consent) if this is required.


You will be required to pay your account in full on the day. If you are eligible to claim a Medicare rebate, we will process this online and you will receive your rebate direct back into your bank account.
