Is it ok if I have my period at the time of the consultation?
Yes, you can still attend the appointment. If an examination is likely to be painful then it will be done at the next appointment. Contact the rooms for further information if you are attending for a procedure.
Does my private health insurance cover the cost of the consultation?
Private health cover usually helps cover the cost of hospitalisation. It does not cover any clinic consultations.
Medicare will offer a rebate for a Consultation. If you are Veteran Affairs Gold card holder your consultation account will be sent directly to Veteran Affairs.
However if you require a Pessary or vaginal dilators, please be aware that Medicare/veteran affairs does not cover this cost and payment will be required on the day of your consultation.
What Is the cost of procedures or surgery?
If you require procedures like Urodynamics or Cystoscopy then most of the costs would be covered by your healthfund. A co-payment or gap-payment will be applicable depending your level of cover.
In the event that you require admission to hospital for surgery, after consultation with Dr Singh, you will be sent an itemized quote for the surgery which is dependent on the surgery to be performed.
From 1st July 2021 there have been changes in MBS schedule and services covered, which may impact on the cost of surgery.
