Imaging Central is a private billing practice that bulk-bills pensioner and healthcare card holders.
It is our policy to maintain an ethical price point consistent with the highest level of service and patient affordability.
The Federal Government through Medicare offers a rebate for most examinations performed at Imaging Central. The difference between the fee charged by Imaging Central and the rebate from Medicare is referred to as the gap. The gap is your out-of-pocket expense after the rebate is received.
The fee charged by Imaging Central and the rebate available through Medicare varies dependent on the examination or procedure. You will be informed of the fee, the rebate and the gap at the time of making an appointment. You will also be notified if no Medicare rebate applies.
It is our policy that patients must pay the full fee immediately following the service.
If you foresee having financial difficulty in affording the referred service, we ask that you please speak with your referring doctor.
If your examination or procedure relates to a Workers Compensation claim, Motor Vehicle Accident claim or you are a DVA patient, please notify us at the time of booking so that we may quote you accurately and inform you of any billing policy that may relate to your circumstances.
