For patients who are eligible for Medicare, approximately 80 to 90% of treatment costs are often covered by Medicare rebates.
Your total cost of radiotherapy treatment is largely covered through Medicare via the Medicare Benefits Scheme and the Extended Medicare Safety Net programs and we can provide you with a guideline of what you are likely to pay out-of-pocket after your treatment plan has been confirmed.
Payment plan options
Our aim is to help make treatment affordable for all patients and we are able to discuss a payment plan with you at your first appointment.
Understanding the cost for radiation treatment
Your first invoice is larger because it includes the costs for simulation and planning which helps our team deliver high-quality personal treatment. Simulation involves a scan to measure your treatment site. Planning is the behind the-scenes work your doctor and radiation therapist do to design your personal treatment plan.
Our patient services team will discuss Medicare reimbursement, the costs and payment options for your treatment together with you at your next appointment.
