Mr. Satyen Gohil is a no gap provider for all health funds (provided your health fund covers the procedure), meaning that for the surgery, there are no extra costs charged to the patient for the surgery or anaesthetic above which is covered by the health funds.
Initial consultation cost is $200, follow up appointments are $100. There are no further costs for post-operative visits for the first 6 weeks, after which time the cost of each visit is $100.
Workers compensation and MVIT consultation fees will be sent directly to the insurer. However, if the claim number is not provided you will be responsible for settling the account on the day.
Pensioners are charged at $150 for the first consult and then $80 for each follow up visit.
There is an out of pocket charge for blood tests.
X-rays as an inpatient are covered, but outpatient X-rays and CTs within the hospital have an out of pocket cost.
MRI costs vary considerably depending on where they are done. Please ask for more details.
For ECG (heart tracings) I use WA cardiology as appointments are not needed. There is a charge above the Medicare rebate.
Medical reports and insurance forms
Are charged at a rate representing the time taken to complete the forms.
Full payment at the appointment time is appreciated. Cash or credit cards are acceptable means of payment. For bank and personal cheques please make prior arrangements with the reception.
