Sometimes after your consultation you will receive a bill for pathology for example Clinpath. This is when you have undergone a biopsy performed under ultrasound by the radiologist at Jones radiology. In some cases the pathology company is not able to bulk bill (for Medicare eligible patients) the patient. When this happens the invoice for pathology is sent to the patient to be paid directly to Clinpath Pathology.
If you receive any invoices or Medicare cheques in the mail from Jones Radiology or Clinpath pathology please contact them directly to make enquiries or to make a payment.
A referral is required when you see any surgeon specialist for you to be eligible to receive a Medicare rebate.
It is important that we receive all new patients referrals prior to attending your appointment. This allows us to get all the information that we require prior to you attending your appointment including any imaging and pathology results.
If you attend yearly review appointments with a surgeon you will need to check that your referral is still current prior to your appointment. Referrals from another specialist only last for 3 months whereas referrals from a GP last 12 months from the date of the initial appointment. Sometimes your GP can provide you with an Indefinite referral for patients who require long-term care or surveillance.
