Face to Face Fees

My fees are time-based at a rate of $120 per 15 minutes and are not directly related to the rebate you receive from the only outpatient third party health insurance provider allowed by law in Australia ie Medicare. These fees do not just cover my face to face time with you but also telephone calls, emails, time researching your individual problems, contacting colleagues and producing a detailed written letter of advice to you and the referring doctor.

Your Medicare rebate is based on Medicare rules and descriptions depend on your referral status. We will endeavour to advise an item number that maximises your rebate within our understanding of your referral status. Please note that for billing purposes Medicare requires a new referral 12 months after your last referral, in the absence of such a referral you can only claim a simple consultation rebate. Thus, it is advisable for you to ensure that you have a valid referral dated within the 12 months prior to your consultation date.

You may be eligible for and extra Medicare Safety Net payment and an Extended Medicare Safety Net payment. More information including registration information can be found at http://www.humanservices.gov.au/customer/services/medicare/medicare-safety-net

Telehealth

Telehealth is the provision of consultation advice using the internet (Skype) to provide a remote service to you using a computer in your home or located or in your town, while I remain in Perth. So the only difference to face to face review is that we are in different places. This saves you travel time and money. I offer telehealth consultations for follow up after we have previously had a face to consultation. The service operates as follows:

  1. If you request a telehealth consultation his secretary will contact you to arrange a time for the consultation and ensure that your connection is functional.
  2. You must live within a telehealth eligible area at least 15km outside the Perth metropolitan area. You must also have access to a computer for a private conversation at home, GP Surgery or Telehealth Centre. The computer will need video and audio connections and Skype freeware installed
  3. Prior to your appointment time you will be contacted to ensure that all the information including your results and referral required for the consultation has been provided to Prof Prince. You will also be asked to provide your credit card number, expiry and ccv prior to your consultation. You will be billed after the consultation.
  4. Before the appointment time his secretary will contact you on Skype to prepare for the consultation.
