Surgical assistants, as health care providers, are entitled to charge an out of pocket ‘gap’ to patients for the provision of their services. This is similar in nature to non-bulk billing GPs or visiting a dentist when there is an out of pocket cost that your private health insurance does not cover.
Health care providers, including surgical assistants, must provide the patient with an ‘Informed Financial Consent’ documentation prior to their treatment. This form outlines the ‘out of pocket’ costs that the patient can expect as part of their treatment, to avoid any nasty surprises.
As Australia’s lowest cost surgical assistant billing provider, OpBill recognises that Surgical assistants are entitled to charge patients a gap, and we facilitate this process by providing a personalised IFC and Invoice template as part of the signup process. This single page PDF can be edited to include your practice specific charges and printed out to provide to your patients.
