Fee structures are complex. The government set Medicare fees in the early 1980s at a level that recognised the costs of practice. However over the years there has been an increasing gap between the costs of medical practice, and the government assigned Medicare scheduled fee.
The Australian Medical Association sets fees that reflect the true costs of medical practice. These fees are now about 2.5 times the Medicare scheduled fee, reflecting the ever increasing gap. To further complicate the issue, the government reimburses the patient with 85% of the Medicare scheduled fee that they recommend.
The charges by this practice reflect the complexity of the assessment and the procedure, taking into account correspondence, reporting and aftercare that may not be immediately evident.
