Billing and Cancellation Policy
At GC Heart and Specialist Centre we offer bulk-billing for a range of cardiac services.
Services that are bulk billed:
24 hour Holter monitors and
Exercise stress echocardiograms.
Services that are NOT bulk billed:
24-hour blood pressure monitors - $50 (out of pocket fee)
Exercise Stress Tests - $70 (out of pocket fee)
For cardiac consultations:
Dr Assad Jadeer and Dr Ahmad Nasir bulk-bill all cardiac patients with a valid referral and Medicare card.
For patients referred to Assoc. Prof Atifur Rahman there is a small out of pocket fee, with discounted rates for Concession Card holders.
Dr Richa Richa, a consultant Endocrinologist and Diabetes Specialist, charges an out of pocket fee of $120 for new patients. Review patients at $55.
Please inform us (either phone or email: firstname.lastname@example.org ) at least 24-hours before to cancel your appointment. Since, in the event of your cancellation we are able to put another equally deserving patient in your place who has been waiting to have the test performed. Failure to notify the practice with enough time will result in a cancellation fee.
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, appointments on Monday will need to be cancelled the Friday before.
