Private Health Insurance

The hospitals that Dr Zicat works in have arrangements with all the private health insurance companies. This insurance with cover most costs associated with the hospital, including implant costs where needed. You will have the opportunity to get a detailed list of these fees and reimbursements by providing the hospital with your medical benefits schedule item number and your health insurance cover details prior to your surgery.

Private health insurance also provides some reimbursement for the surgeon’s fee and anaesthetist’s fee, and the amount will be provided to you at the time of consultation. Samantha or Louisa will be able to assist with any questions you have regarding these fees.

Private health insurance does not provide a reimbursement for visits in the rooms, although most postoperative visits are included in the fee for the surgical procedure.
