Anaesthetic Costs

Some common questions about costs answered

Q. What is the Cost?

The fee which you will be charged for your anaesthetic service is based on the complexity of the anaesthetic procedure and the time taken in the care of the patient. The fee is in line with the recommendations of the Australian Society of Anaesthetists and the Australian Medical Association.

Q. Health Insurance Rates

The rebate which you receive from your insurers (Medicare and your private health insurance fund) covers only part of the cost of your anaesthetic services. This amount is fixed by government legislation. This means that you will be responsible for the balance of the anaesthesia fee. In other words, there will be an out of pocket amount to pay.

Although the exact fee for your anaesthetic will be determined by the nature and duration of the anaesthetic attendance, it is usually possible to give a close estimate before surgery. You are advised to obtain this information from our office so that you are aware of all the costs involved before your operation.

Payments may be made by cash, cheque, Visa or Mastercard.
