Your surgeon should provide you with the necessary admission forms. You will need to complete the Patient Admission Form and Anaesthetic Questionnaire and return them to us at least 5 days prior to your surgery. Submitting these forms on time enables our staff to register your details and check your health fund status. This enables us to provide you with an Estimate of Fees prior to your admission date and confirm your place on the theatre list.
If your surgeon has not provided you with the necessary forms, or you require additional copies for any reason, a digital version is available for download below.
Fees & Charges
Procedures at Crows Nest Day Hospital attract three (3) separate fees: a fee for the surgeon, a fee for the anaesthetist, and fees for your day surgery admission.
Insured patients: If you have private health insurance with hospital cover, your day surgery admission may be fully covered. Depending on your health fund and level of cover, however, an excess, co-payment and/or additional facility fee(s) may apply. These out-of-pocket expenses are not claimable, and are due on the day of surgery.
Uninsured patients: If you do not have private health insurance, you will be required to pay the full amount for your day surgery admission. These fees are not claimable, and are due on the day of surgery.
Upon receipt of your admission forms (see above), our administration staff will prepare an Estimate of Fees, which will be forwarded to you prior to your surgery date. This estimate will outline your health fund status and indicate whether any out-of-pocket expenses will be payable. Once you’ve had a chance to review this estimate, please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns. It is important to us that you are fully informed about any out-of-pocket expenses before your admission. We are unable to provide any information regarding fees until we have received your admission forms.
We accept payments using cash, credit (VISA and MasterCard) and EFTPOS.
Details of surgeon’s and anaesthetist’s fees should be discussed directly with the relevant clinician’s office/contact person.
