Who can be referred to a GenesisCare centre?
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.
How long does a referral remain current?
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.
Does my cardiologist need to see my referral first?
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.
Will I be able to claim my out of pocket expense with my healthcare fund?
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.
