Do I need a Referral?

A doctors referral is not required.
A referral from your doctor is only required if you are a Veteran Affairs patient if you are claiming via Workers Compensation or Third Party Insurance.

Can I Claim via my Private Health Fund?

Yes! We have HICAPS terminal which means that we can provide you with immediate claiming with your Private Health Fund.
You only need to pay the gap on the day you visit.
Check with your health fund to determine how much your out-of-pocket expenses will be.
