Fees & Billing
What are the expenses for my procedure?
Direct Radiology is dedicated to making high-quality healthcare accessible to all. In line with this commitment, we have adopted a bulk billing approach for the majority of Medicare-rebatable items. This means most will not incur any out-of-pocket fees.
Our philosophy revolves around ensuring that financial considerations do not hinder access to essential healthcare services. By aligning our practices with bulk billing for Medicare rebatable items, we aim to remove financial barriers and make advanced imaging services widely available.
The decision to bulk bill reflects our unwavering dedication to providing equitable healthcare solutions. This approach not only emphasises affordability but also underscores our commitment to delivering high-quality diagnostic imaging services to our patients.
However, it's important to note that certain imaging procedures may require a different approach. This is primarily due to the extended time and associated costs linked with these specific procedures. In such cases, there is a possibility that patients may incur an out-of-pocket fee for the following imaging items:
- Obstetric Ultrasound
- Paediatric Ultrasound
- Interventional Radiology
- Pelvic Ultrasound
- Breast Ultrasound
Our commitment to transparency is a cornerstone of our service philosophy at Direct Radiology. We make it a priority to communicate any potential fees well in advance, ensuring that our patients are fully informed about the financial aspects of their medical imaging services.
