Fees &
PAYMENTS

We require full payment at the conclusion of your consultation. We accept cash, EFTPOS or credit card. You will receive a Medicare rebate on the same day for this visit.

We offer a discounted rate to Aged Pensioners only. Please note: We are NOT a bulk billing practice.

We are happy to process your Medicare claim for you once payment is made. For us to be able to do this, you must have your current Medicare card details, a current referral, and advised Medicare of your bank account details.

Your
COLONOSCOPY

A colonoscopy is a type of endoscopy that is used to diagnose conditions affecting your lower digestive tract including the rectum and large intestine (colon). Dr De Lacavalerie uses this procedure to identify and treat a range of issues. It includes viewing inside the anus and large intestine with a surgical camera while the patient is under sedation.

Are you eligible for DIRECT Access Endoscopy? 

You may be able to book your Endoscopy directly – without a Doctor’s consultation – if you have one of the following indications: 

  • Cancer screening
  • Iron deficiency ± anaemia
  • Positive Faecal Occult Blood Test (FOBT)
  • Personal history of polyps or cancer
  • Family history of gastrointestinal cancer
  • Rectal bleeding


To do so, you must NOT have any of the following conditions: 

  • You are 75 years old or over
  • BMI over 40
  • Serious heart, lung, kidney or liver disease
  • Previous difficulties with anaesthesia
  • Impaired mobility affecting independence with bowel preparation
  • Blood thinning medications (not including aspirin)


If this is you, call 1300 0 BOWEL (26935) to make a booking on our endoscopy list at Prince of Wales Private or Sydney Adventist Hospital.

Your
OPERATION

All fees are charged in accordance with recommendations by the Australian Medical Association (AMA).

Surgical fees charged by this practice are at or below that recommended by the Australian Medical Association (AMA).  

Due to constraints imposed by various private health insurance companies we regret that we cannot participate in gap cover schemes.  

Before you consent to a surgical procedure you will be provided with a written “Informed Financial Consent” prior to your operation which will outline your rebate, and the gap “out of pocket fees” charged by our practice. These fees are separate to any other costs in relation to your surgery including anaesthetic fees, assistant fee (if required) and your hospital excess. 

Invoices are payable in full 7 days after receipt. Once full payment is received you will be issued with a receipt.
