- To book an appointment with Dr Englund all patients will require a medical referral from their general practitioner (which will remain valid for a period of 12 months) or from their treating specialist (which will remain valid for a period of 3 months). This will allow the patient to claim a rebate from medicare on the cost of the consultation or treatment. The value of the specific rebate corresponding to your treatment is listed in the Australian Commonwealth Medical Benefits Schedule (MBS). The link to this schedule is listed below.
- Initial Consultation with Dr Englund (MBS item number 104) is $200.
- Follow up consultation with Dr Englund (MBS item number 105) is $100.
- Patients over the age of 70 years will be bulk billed for consultations in the rooms.
- For all surgical procedures that are performed in a private hospital, an informed financial consent document will be provided to the patient by Dr Englund prior to Dr Englund booking in the operation.
- All diagnostic testing by ultrasound or DSA (Digital Subtraction Angiography) are directly billed to medicare or your health fund.
- Endovascular procedures are directly billed to medicare or your health fund with the exception of RFA (Radio Frequency Ablation) in which case the patient will be required to pay for the RFA probe at a cost of $700.
- It is important for prospective patients to understand that every patient’s condition will require different treatment all of which will be costed differently depending on the complexity of the procedure required for that individual. The rebate that you receive from your health fund will also differ depending on which fund your are with and this will impact on the total cost of your procedure. If you wish to research the base level price of your required procedure then you are welcome to look at the Australian Commonwealth Medical Benefits Schedule which is accessible on the blue linked button below. This is the basic starting point for any medical procedure but will change according to the individual case, therefore, Dr Englund will provide you with a quote that he feels is suited to your specific case.
