What Does It Cost To See A Medical Specialist? 2/3

In the previous article we spoke about how a medical specialist can help you as an individual diagnose your injuries and how they help us build your case by providing irrefutable evidence of your injury.

What does it cost to see a Medical Specialist?

Medical specialists can work within the public healthcare system or the private healthcare system.

Their fees can vary on a number of things including:

  • whether or not they work in public hospitals or privately;
  • whether they bulk-bill under the Commonwealth Government’s Medical Benefits Scheme (MBS);
  • private health cover payment options like gap payment or reimbursement.

When Is Free To See a Medical Specialist?

Professional sports players often see the best specialists because their sporting clubs will foot the bill. ADF personnel are covered by the ADF health care system. WorkCover NSW can cover costs for people who have been injured at work but only to a certain extent. It can be very stressful and financially draining recovering from an injury on the road or at work.

How can PK help me with Medical Specialists?
