Will my account be covered by Medicare or my Private Health Insurer?
WA Cardiology is a private billing practice. If you hold a valid Medicare card, your account will be partly covered by Medicare (with the exception of BP monitors). The remainder of the account will be your responsibility. Discounts apply to Pensioners and Health Care Card holders.
In August 2020, Medicare implemented new restrictions on the frequency of claiming several cardiology tests. Patients are eligible for rebates on these particular services once within a two year period. We will inform you at the time of booking if this rule affects to you.
Private Health Insurance is only applicable for hospital inpatient accounts (including day procedures) and varies depending on your level of cover.
