Contracted Health Funds
Ballarat Surgicentre has contracts with most Private health funds. Patients with private hospital health cover from these funds will generally be covered for excision of skin cancers and some benign skin lesions by their respective fund.
Every Health Fund is different and it will depend on the type of policy that an individual patient holds with their fund. Patients with private health insurance may be fully covered or have an out of pocket expense payment, depending on their fund and level of cover. Some policies may have an “excess” payment at the time of admission.
Our staff will assist you to work out the cost of all fees and out of pocket expenses before surgery.
