Assistant Surgical Fee

I will be assisting A/Professor Tran at your upcoming operation. I have extensive experience in surgical assistance with over 20,000 procedures.

Private Health Insurance

If you have private health insurance, I will directly bill your private health fund for most of the applicable fee. The following out of pocket fees will apply in addition and will be invoiced to you separately:

  • Arthroscopy (hip, knee, shoulder) $150 
  • Joint Replacement  (hip, knee, shoulder)   $200 

These out of pocket fees will not be rebatable from your health fund.

Uninsured and N.I.B.

If you do not have private health insurance or are with NIB insurance or for some reason they do not cover the procedure, my fee will be approximately 20% of the surgeon’s total fee. Medicare will pay a proportion of this fee. There will be an excess above the Medicare amount which will be out of pocket. My billing service will invoice you. Payment should be made to the billing service, who will issue you with a receipt that can be taken to Medicare so you can claim your rebate.

TAC, WorkCover, DVA

If you are covered through TAC, WorkCover or DVA, my account will be sent directly to the organization, and there will be no out of pocket fee.
