Billing and Fees

ASCP is a private billing practice. Our fees are determined by the Australian Medical Association recommended rates and the costs associated with running a high-quality medical practice.

  • Medicare rebates apply for consultations and procedures but you will be out of pocket.
  • Liquid nitrogen cryotherapy and shave biopsies are bulk-billed.
  • We accept DVA and WorkCover patients.

  • Patients who hold a valid pension/health care card will receive 30% off the out of pocket cost.
  • Patients over 65 years old will receive 20% off the out of pocket cost.
  • Patients over 75 years old will receive 30% off the out of pocket cost.

Procedure Fees:

The cost of procedures varies with the type of procedure and its complexity. When booking a procedure, all patients are given an information sheet explaining all aspects of the procedure and its associated costs.

Dr Stapelberg:

Roughly, the cost per lesion ranges from $50 - $150 out of pocket. The cost of any additional lesions in the same procedure will be reduced by 50% as per the Medicare Multiple Procedure Rule.

Dr Hertess:

Dr Hertess's procedure fees are set by the Australian Medical Association (AMA). Roughly, the cost per lesion can range from $60 - $700 out of pocket. The cost of any additional lesions in the same procedure will be reduced by 50% as per the Medicare Multiple Procedure Rule. This range does not include advanced repair techniques, hospital fees or general anaesthetic fees, which may be required in some instances.

 

We require that all accounts be settled in full on the day of consultation; EFTPOS, Visa, Mastercard, AMEX and cash are accepted.

Our practice claims your Medicare rebate on your behalf. Your Medicare rebate will be credited to your nominated bank account within 24 - 48 hours. 

Please contact us if you wish to discuss the fee for your appointment.

Appointment times will vary from 15 minutes to one hour in duration.
