Your Private Health Fund and Medicare may cover some of the cost of surgery. However, there may be an additional cost to be paid by you (commonly known as the GAP Payment) for the surgical services provided.

If you are a non-insured patient and select private surgical services it is possible to do so, entirely at your own expense.  In this instance Medicare will cover some of the doctor’s fees.
