Useful InformationFrequently Asked Questions
Will the Doctor deliver my baby if I am a public patient and I see him for ante-natal visits?
The Doctor will deliver your baby if you are a private patient, otherwise the midwife or (if required) the Gynaecological Registrar will be available.
Do you bulk bill?
This is not a bulk billing practice, but we do offer a discount for holders of a Centrelink Health Care Card or Pensioner Concession Card. Payment is required on the day of consultation .After payment of your account you are entitled to claim the Medicare Rebate.
Do you participate in the “No Gap” scheme with my Health Fund?
Yes, we do participate in the “No Gap” scheme with Health Funds, which basically means that if you do have surgery, there will be no out of pocket expenses for Dr McCosker’s fees and the account will be billed directly to your health fund.
Why did I get a bill from Pathology when I have already paid in the office?
Payments in the office are for the consultation and examination, not for pathology tests on specimens collected in the office. If you have an examination that requires pathology (eg. Pap smear, biopsy), the specimen will be sent to one of the Pathology Lab’s in the Wollongong area. Any queries should be directed to the relevant Pathology Lab.
Why do I need a referral from a GP?
A referral is helpful to give Dr McCosker a history of your health, and treatment used. Your GP could also include any test results that you have had recently in relation to your condition. Having a current referral allows you to claim a rebate from Medicare.
