Most imaging studies are partially covered by a Medicare rebate. A ‘gap Fee’ may be applied because the actual cost of providing a Medical Imaging Service is more than the rebate available from Medicare. Please call us on (03) 9508 1444 for specific out-of-of pocket costs. Pensioners and Concession cardholders will be bulk billed for the majority of procedures. Patients having multiple examinations on the same day (i.e. CT and MRI) will have a maximum out-of-pocket cost of $400 per visit. Third party claims such as TAC and Workcover will be billed to the relevant authority.
Inpatient Medical Imaging Services usually attract a Medicare rebate. If you are a member of an agreed health fund, you will have no out-of-pocket costs for most Medical Imaging Services whilst in hospital, they will be billed directly to your health fund. Please contact Medical Imaging on (03) 9508 1444 to find out if you are a member of an ‘agreed fund’ or for further information regarding out-of-pocket costs when you are an inpatient at Cabrini.
