  • Will I get a rebate from Medicare for the consultation fees?

    Yes. A valid referral from your doctor allows our staff to process your Medicare rebate on the day or, if you prefer, issue you with a receipt to claim a rebate from any Medicare office. Alternatively, you may wish to download the free Medicare Express Plus App to your mobile device.

  • I don’t have private health insurance. What costs can I expect?

    A standard consultation fee will apply for your office appointment, however if your procedure is booked through Wagga Wagga base Hospital, all
    costs will be covered by Medicare. After your consultation, you will be put on a waiting list and later contacted by hospital staff with a date and a time for your procedure.

  • I have private health insurance. What costs can I expect?
    • Private health insurance entitles you to three things:
      • Your choice of surgeon
      • Your choice of private hospital
      • Your choice of procedure date
      • Private health insurance covers private hospital expenses, but only a small portion of the fees charged by your anaesthetist, surgeon and providers of pathology and radiology services. The bulk of these fees are met by Medicare.
      • Any ‘out-of-pocket’ fees from Dr Jancewicz (that portion not covered by your health insurance and Medicare) will be explained to you on the day of booking by our staff. This estimate will also be given to you in writing as Informed Financial Consent is a legal requirement.
