The following costs apply to treatment for private patients:
- Initial Appointment $100
- Follow-up Appointment $90
Additional costs apply for splints/orthoses and other therapy equipment that may be required. Your therapist will be able to give you a quote of the costs involved at the time of your visit. EFTPOS and HICAPs facilities are available at all clinic locations.
Private Health Insurance Rebates
Hand Therapy consultations costs may be covered under Occupational Therapy or Physiotherapy with your private health fund. Splints/Orthoses cannot be claimed using HICAPs so you will need to pay for the full cost of the splint/orthosis at the time of the visit and be reimbursed by your health fund.
WorkCover and Private Insurance Fees
WorkCover, Department of Veteran’s Affairs, Allianz, GIO, QBE and other independent Insurers have their own schedule of fees, which are billed directly to the fund by GCHT. You will not be charged an out of pocket cost provided you have a valid claim number and medical certificate issued by your doctor.
