Information About Fees & Quotes
It is important to know that your anaesthetic account is separate to any others you might incur related to your procedure.
The anaesthetic fee is calculated using the Commonwealth Medicare Benefits Schedule (MBS) schedule of fees. Each aspect of the anaesthetic is assigned an MBS item number that has a corresponding unit value. The fee is calculated from the total number of units accrued. Other aspects used to calculate the fees are the type and duration of surgery, the health and age of the patient, special monitoring required and emergency procedures.
Private Health funds and Medicare cover a portion of the total fee which may leave you with an out of pocket expense.
