Designing better care
At GenesisCare we provide cardiac, sleep & respiratory consultations, testing and procedures. We are committed to understanding the needs of our patients to continually provide a caring and professional service. We will respond rapidly to your needs with access to multiple sites for services, fast turnaround of reporting and priority service for urgent patients.
Anyone in need of cardiology tests and procedures can be referred to a GenesisCare centre and you’ll need a referral in order to claim a rebate from Medicare Australia. Ask your GP or specialist for a referral to your GenesisCare team.
A referral from a specialist only remains current for 3 months. A referral from a General Practitioner remains current for 12 months, unless otherwise specified by your GP.
You are required to bring your referral with you to your first appointment. Some specific cardiologists and services require your referral to be seen prior to the confirmation of your appointment. The GenesisCare team will be happy to advise you about this.
You can only claim through your healthcare fund for inpatient services. Sometimes, your health fund and Medicare may not fully cover the medical fees and you may be required to make an out of pocket or gap payment for inpatient services.
GenesisCare shares a long partnership with Bupa.
This partnership ensures that not only are you part of a great program that aims to improve clinical outcomes for patients with cardiovascular disease but there are no out-of-pocket expenses for services from GenesisCare cardiologists when you’re admitted into hospital.

Speak to a member of the team at your local GenesisCare centre.
Talk to your local doctor in the first instance. Your doctor will then write a referral for a sleep study if appropriate.
The gold standard for sleep testing is within a sleep laboratory with a sleep technician in attendance. Generally this is the first option. For patients that are suitable (depending on the sleep condition) home testing may be an option.
You will be in a private room and well looked after by the sleep technician on the night. Most patients sleep well and usually better than they anticipated.
GenesisCare provides Sleep Specialist consulting at all our region. Your review appointments will be either with a Sleep Specialist or with your referring doctor depending upon the requirements of yourself and your referring doctor.
