Billing and Cancelation Policy
At GC Heart and Specialist Centre all of our testing is fully bulk-billed with no out of pocket expense for patients with a referral and a valid Medicare card.
For cardiac consultations, patients referred to Dr Assad Jadeer will be bulk-billed. For patients being seen by Associate Professor Atifur Rahman there is a small out of pocket expense, with discounted rates for pension and health care card holders.
As we are a specialist clinic, we require at least 24-hours’ notice for cancelling all appointments. Failing to notify our practice with sufficient time, will result in a cancellation fee. The fee will be invoiced for all appointment types, consultations and testing including.
As a stress echocardiogram involves multiple members of staff, as well as a cardiologist, failing to give adequate cancellation notice will result in a $450.00 fee. As the clinic is not open on weekends, Monday appointments will need to be cancelled the Friday before. To cancel or change your appointment please call our reception staff during opening hours.
