What is the price?
Please contact the listed surgeons to source cost information or contact the St John of God Murdoch Hospital Helpline for any other assistance. We have worked with these specialists to keep costs as low as possible to ensure you can access the benefits of private health services within a short time.
Your specialist will provide you with information on all fees associated with your procedure during your initial consultation. This will include information on surgeon, anaesthetist and hospital fees, as well as any prostheses and other costs you may incur. Depending on your procedure, this may include pharmacy, radiology, pathology or allied health services.
Your surgeon will explain when you will receive invoices from your surgeon and your anaesthetist, as well as when payment of these invoices will be required.
You will be asked to complete your admission process online via My Admission. As part of your hospital admission, a member of our team will speak to you about your hospital fees and you will be asked for your consent before your admission is completed.
You will be asked to pay your hospital fees two business days prior to your procedure (unless there are less than two business days until your procedure at the time of your consultation with your surgeon).
