Additional information

Most treatments are available in both the public and private systems but the costs can be very different. Also, a specialist can work in the public system, private system or both.

It is important to ask about fees before any doctors' visits, tests or treatments. Ask what the fees will be and how much you will get back from Medicare or your private health fund. You will have to pay any remaining costs (the gap payment).
