How Much Will it Cost to see Dr David Jefferson
We request that all payments for consultations be made on the day of the consultation and that you bring a current referral with you.
Our costs for consultations are as follows:
These items are rebateable from Medicare only when you see the doctor as an outpatient and have a current referral.
How Much Do I get back from Medicare?
The rebate amount will vary from time to time and will depend on whether you have reached the Medicare Safety-Net or not.
When you have paid your account we can submit your claim directly to Medicare (provided with have your Medicare number and a current referral) and we can then print the statement from Medicare which indicates what rebate you will get from them.
Why Do I need a referral if I have seen the doctor before?
It is a requirement of Medicare that in order for specialist consultations to be rebated patients require a current referral. You can see the doctor without a current referral but will not be able to claim from Medicare.
- Referrals from Specialists last for 3 months.
- Referrals from GPs last for 12 months, unless an “Indefinite” referral is provided, in which case the referral will, in theory, never expire.
