  • You do not require a referral to see the specialist.
  • If you have a referral you will be able to claim back approximately $73 rebate through Medicare. Subsequent consultations for the same problem within a certain time frame are $170 with an approximately $35 rebate from Medicare.
  • Any extra procedures such as biopsies are an additional cost but are also partly subsidised via Medicare if you have a referral.
  • Unfortunately, there is no private health rebate for any outpatient appointments.
