Remember to bring

Information about fees

Payment for the consultation is expected on the day. We accept cash, credit (VISA and Mastercard) and debit cards. You can claim a portion of the consultation fee back from Medicare.

If surgery is required, you may elect to be treated at the Coffs Harbour Health Campus or Baringa Private Hospital. Treatment at the public hospital is fully covered by Medicare.

For treatment at the private hospital our staff will be able to provide you with a quotation. Dr Broadhead participates in ‘no-gap’ agreements with most private health insurance providers and depending on your level of cover your surgery and hospital stay may be completely covered by the health fund. Please note that there may be additional fees charged by the surgical assistant and anaesthetist.

If you do not have private health insurance but still wish to be treated in a private hospital, you will be provided with a full fee estimate including fees for the surgeon, surgical assistant, the anaesthetist, the private hospital and any required surgical implants or prostheses.
