When do I have to pay for my operation/procedure?
Payment for cosmetic procedures is made approximately one week prior to the operation date for both the surgeon and anaesthetist. Hospital fees for uninsured patients and those having cosmetic procedures are payable on admission to Aesthetic Day Surgery.
For insured patients having operations which qualify for a Medicare item number, Aesthetic Day Surgery directly bills the hospital fund. Any ‘excess’ or exclusion fees must be paid on the day of admission.
