Fees for Anaesthesia Services are separate from surgeons and hospital fees. There are commonly out of pocket fees (also known as "gaps") not covered by Medicare or Health Fund rebates. The amount will depend on the type & duration of your operation and your health fund.

The Australian Society of Anaesthetists (ASA) created an information sheet (click to read) explaining out of pocket expenses. Choice Australia did a review on this subject which is also worth reading to understand more about this topic – read here.

You may be contacted by phone call, SMS or email to advise you of your gap before the procedure.

Please feel free to contact Hollywood Anaesthesia if you wish to receive information about your particular anaesthesia costs.
