Regional Imaging clinics accept Mastercard, Visa, cheque or cash and provide EFTPOS facilities at most sites to facilitate easy payment of accounts on the day. We can also lodge Medicare claims electronically, so that Medicare rebates are automatically sent to your nominated bank account.
Fees charged by our clinics are consistent with providing a high quality medical imaging service. The fees vary depending on the procedure required, and sometimes on the number of tests performed. Patients are advised of the cost of their examination when making an appointment.
Depending on your examination and the clinic you visit your examination may or may not attract a Medicare rebate. If your examination does not attract a Medicare rebate, our staff will inform you prior to your examination.
The Medicare rebate represents what the Federal Government is prepared to contribute towards the cost of health services. For many imaging studies, the Medicare rebate is substantially less than the actual cost of providing the service and you will be asked to make a gap payment.
The gap payment is the difference between the fee charged and the Medicare rebate. The size of the gap payment varies depending on the type of examination.
Pensioners and Healthcare card holders are bulk-billed for most Medicare rebateable examinations.
Inpatients at Private Hospitals
Regional Imaging maintains a no gap agreement with many private health funds. Members of these funds will not incur out-of-pocket fees for radiology services that are eligible for the Medicare rebate. If your private health insurance fund does not have a no-gap agreement with Regional Imaging you may incur additional fees while you are an inpatient.
For further information on our billing policy please contact your local Regional Imaging clinic.
