Please bring any relevant cards – such as Medicare, health fund, pension and Veterans' Affairs cards – to each appointment with us.

Arriving at the clinic

You will need to complete a patient information form. Our staff will then register you as a patient.

Your initial consultation

Your clinician will provide you with a skin cancer risk assessment, treatment options if required, and subsequent screening based on your skin examination and background history.

Next steps

Before you leave, our reception staff will create an account for your consultation and any testing performed. Once you have paid we can electronically lodge your account claim with Medicare.

You can also make any follow-up appointments at reception before you leave.

How much will my appointment cost?

A routine skin check costs $100.00, of which $39.75 can be claimed back from Medicare. If our doctors feel a more extensive check is required then a $155.00 fee is incurred, of which $76.95 can be claimed back from Medicare.

We offer reduced fees to pensioners and healthcare card holders.

Will I get money back from Medicare?

Medicare offer rebates for your appointment fees (see above). We can lodge your rebate with Medicare on your behalf when you pay for your appointment. Medicare will then credit your nominated bank account.

Will I get money back from my private health insurance?

Most private policies only cover you when you are admitted to hospital and don’t cover out-patient consultations. For more information, speak to your health fund directly about what’s covered in your policy.

When do I pay for my appointment?

You will need to pay at the time of your consultation. Don’t forget to bring your pensioner, health care or DVA cards to ensure we bill you at the correct rate.

We welcome positive and constructive feedback in order to continuously improve our service. You can leave a message in the feedback box in the reception area; complete our survey; or email us at feedback@mqhealth.org.au
