All patients admitted to Jolimont Endoscopy are charged a theatre fee. We have agreements with all private health funds and your level of insurance will determine any out of pocket costs. It is advisable to contact your private health insurer prior to admission to check if an excess or co-payment applies to your level of cover for your procedure.
There are four separate accounts for your procedure:
1. The gastroenterologist performing the procedure
2. The anaesthetist
4. The pathology service, if biopsies are taken
Medicare will rebate a portion of 1, 2 and 4
If you are not privately insured, your hospital out-of-pocket costs are not covered by Medicare.
