Gastroenterology North Queensland offers high-quality gastroenterology services, with minimal out-of-pocket expenses.
We will bill your health fund directly for the procedure. We can provide you with contact details for your anaesthetist and encourage you to talk with them directly. Standard bowel preparation is available for purchase from your pharmacy.
We choose to run this service under a no-gap fee policy.
Out-patient services are not covered by private health insurance.
We use Medicare consultation item numbers for billing. You can claim approximately 85% of the fee from Medicare. We do offer bulk billing for a number of services. These include children, pensioners, those who make frequent attendance due to a chronic gastroenterological disease and those who are visiting for results post-procedure. Current MBS fees are available at the practice or from Medicare website.
Are welcome to the practice. Medicare will cover a proportion of the procedure fee (approx. 75%) but hospital bed fees are not rebatable. Please discuss these costs with our staff.
