Although Professor Cheah charges less than the recommended AMA rates, you will incur out-of-pocket expenses after the Medicare rebate for your consultation. We operate a cashless practice, so require payment by credit card or EFTPOS only and request payment in full on the day of the consultation.
We can process the lodgement of the Medicare and Private Health Insurance rebate for you on the day.
Please check with your fund for any out-of-pocket expenses.
Many patients who attend this practice have compromised immune systems. In the interests of protecting them we are making the following changes effective February 6, 2022.
1. Some new and many follow up consultations are suitable for telehealth. Discuss it with me and I will advise if this is suitable.
2. Prior to face-to-face appointments, proof of COVID vaccination is required on arrival. If you cannot provide proof of vaccination, you will be asked to return to your car and complete the appointment via telehealth.
a) Wear a mask
b) Bring no more than ONE support person (proof of their COVID vaccination also required on arrival)
c) Sanitise your hands on entry
d) DO NOT ATTEND if you:
i) Have sore throat, cough, runny nose or any other respiratory symptoms
ii) Are a close contact of a known COVID case
iii) Have been asked to isolate by the Health Department
3. If you are unvaccinated or choose not to provide your vaccination certificate, telehealth consultation will be available. If I determine physical examination is required, specific arrangements will be made to facilitate this.
