Payment & Claiming

Payment & Claiming

The Vein Clinic is a privately owned, specialist medical clinic with a unique focus on treating veins. We invest in the most effective and up to date technologies and also invest heavily in education. The fees we charge reflect the level of expertise and service we offer. We do not aim to be the cheapest nor the most expensive provider of these services.

Full payment is required on the day of service.

For your convenience we accept eftpos, Visa and MasterCard. Electronic funds transfers in advance will also be accepted as long as payment is received prior to your appointment/treatment.

Medicare

Consultations, scans as part of your assessment, and most treatment appointments are eligible for Medicare rebate. Purely cosmetic treatments will generally not attract a Medicare rebate. Medicare does not cover the cost of consumables required for your treatment. Regulations regarding the processing of Medicare claims will differ according to your personal circumstances.

The Vein Clinic will provide you with an itemised quote for your treatment, however we cannot guarantee the rebate you will be entitled to from Medicare. Medicare are not always uniform in how they process claims. We cannot confirm exact rebates but do our best to provide you with educated estimates based on how patient claims are currently being processed and include safety net contributions. Please be advised that your treatment quote and estimated Medicare rebates are valid for that calendar year only, as the Medicare safety net resets on January 1 each year.

How to check your Medicare Safety Net balance

Private Health Insurance

Private health funds do not provide any rebate towards treatment costs, as these are performed out of hospital on a “walk-in, walk-out” basis in our custom-built vein clinic. Private health insurance will in many cases contribute towards the cost of compression stockings required after treatment. The amount claimable through your health fund is dependent on your level of insurance cover.
