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).
To make an appointment, contact Riverina Medical and Dental Aboriginal Corporation or phone (02) 6923 5200 (Medical) or (02) 6923 5300 (Dental).
Information about what to expect before, during and after cancer treatment is available in this guide, written for Aboriginal people.
