Billing Policy

General Policy

We bulk-bill all Medicare eligible treatments. Bulk billing means no gap payment and no unexpected out of pocket expense. Where a scan is not Medicare eligible, payment will be required at the time of your appointment.

Appointments usually covered by Medicare include:

  • Most diagnostic X-rays, CT scans, Ultrasound scans, where referred by a GP
  • Some MRI scans, where referred by a GP (please see list further below)
  • Interventional Pain Treatments, where referred by a GP
  • Some treatments referred by Physio, Chiropractors and Podiatrists

Appointments generally not covered by Medicare include:

  • Preventative imaging – where the patient is not experiencing symptoms but would like to investigate their risk of developing disease. This includes Whole Body MRI, Visceral Fat Assessments, Advanced Dementia Screenings, and CAC Scoring.
  • Cosmetic procedures – CoolSculpting® fat reduction and ResurFX™ skin rejuvenation.

This list does not account for all possible appointment conditions and types. Please ensure you check whether you will owe a gap payment at the time of booking and be prepared to pay (where necessary) at the time of your appointment. We accept payment over the phone when you make your appointment, or on the day via cash, card, Eftpos or cheque. We do not accept AMEX.

AdelaideMRI bulk bills the cost of all eligible examinations to Medicare on the day of the examination in most circumstances. Medicare rules are very strict. Where patients are not eligible to claim a Medicare rebate, these patients are required to pay a fee at the time of consultation. If you are unsure please ask at the time of booking.
