Consultation and Skin Surgery Costs

Consultation fees are comparable to other specialist medical service providers and billed in a socially responsible manner.

Gippsland Melanoma and Skin Cancer Clinic provides services through Fitzpatrick House which is a private medical facility that works closely with Central Gippsland Health Service and other local hospitals and health care facilities.

Charges for surgical procedures are calculated and guided by the Medicare schedule of which a major proportion is rebateable. An additional facility fee is charged from Fitzpatrick House which is not rebateable but the composite fee charge includes aftercare and the first appointment after surgery for discussion of the pathology result, removal of sutures and to formuate a plan for further clinical management as required.

Generally the charge for the surgical service is moderate and proportional to the complexity of the clinical problem and the required surgical effort and solution.
