Referrals to Specialists
To be eligible for a Medicare rebate you are required to have either a GP/Specialist referral. If you are referred by a GP your referral is valid for 12 months. Specialist referrals are only valid for 3 months. If you think that your condition will require visits to Colorectal Surgery for a period longer than 3 months we suggest that you contact your GP to gain a referral for 12 months. If you are referred by a Specialist please provide us with your GP details on our Patient Information forms.
The Specialists at Colorectal Surgery keep all referring and treating medical practitioners informed of your progress. Please advise our Specialists or staff the names of medical practitioners that are currently involved in your treatment. Colorectal Surgery has ARGUS and email correspondence is preferred.
All appointments can be made through our head office. Please ask about our Easy Access Colonoscopy service as you may be eligible to have your procedure as a day case.

Colorectal Surgery is a private billing practice. Each surgeon has their own fee and some have full fee payments on the day of consultation. You will be advised by staff when booking your appointment if your Surgeon does have this policy. All practices have EFTPOS facilities.
Some of our doctors require that patients attending the private clinics have health insurance (cover for private hospital admission). You will be asked this question when making an appointment. If you do not have health insurance you will be directed to the Public Hospital where your surgeon consults and you will be able to make an appointment to be seen at the outpatient clinic.
Some Surgeons charge an "Out of Pocket" expense for surgical procedures and these are outlined either on our Patient Information forms or the Surgeon will discuss any "Out of Pocket" expense with you directly.
