Billing and payment

Patients pay the Medicare Schedule fee for our pathology services, with only a small gap amount payable. 

The gap payment is the difference between the Medicare scheduled fee and the amount rebateable by Medicare.

Tests can be bulk billed to Medicare if the patient signs the Medicare Assignment section on the request form, has a valid Medicare card and meets the Medicare criteria.

If the above does not apply, then the test will be privately billed and will incur a fee based on the test.

Invoices for patients with Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) may be billed directly to Allianz Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) Worldcare on provision of a valid membership number, or BUPA OSHC on provision of a valid membership number and expiry date.
