  • Skin Brachytherapy – A non invasive treatment for early skin cancers that can be an effective alternative to surgery

Referrals and Fees

A referral is required from your GP or Specialist for your initial consultation.

All radiation therapy services are covered under Medicare, with 80-90% of treatment costs reimbursed. Private health insurance is not required.

There is an even greater Medicare rebate if you’ve reached your Medicare Safety Net threshold, making your our-of-pocket costs much less. The Medicare Safety Net threshold applies to individuals and families, so you must be registered to receive Safety Net benefits.

Most radiation therapy can be delivered on an outpatient basis. Patients with private health insurance should be aware Private Health Funds only reimburse part of the costs if the patient is admitted to hospital for the duration of the treatment.

Eligible Repatriation Health Card holders may not be charged for consultation or treatment as fees may be paid for by the Department of Veterans’ Affairs.


Accommodation

Country patients who require a weekly radiotherapy program can be accommodated on the Hospital grounds at Jacaranda Lodge
