Genesis CancerCare Queensland is a privately owned medical practice. As such, fees are charged to ensure that we are able to continue to provide a high quality, timely and comprehensive radiation therapy service for all patients referred to us.
Our fees cover and include the following:
- All consultations with your radiation oncologist
- CT simulation scan
- Planning dosimetry
- All treatments, including X-ray imaging used for treatment setup verification
Your course of radiation therapy will be tailored to meet your individual health needs as directed by your radiation oncologist. The total cost of this treatment depends on several factors that can only be determined once your radiation therapy planning is complete.
It's important to be aware that Medicare will reimburse a significant amount of your treatment cost via the Medicare Benefits Scheme and the Extended Medicare Safety Net programs. However there will be an Out-Of-Pocket expense, which is the difference between our fee and the amount reimbursed by Medicare.
At the completion of your initial consultation you will be provided with an estimate of the Out-Of-Pocket expense for your recommended treatment course. If you have any concerns about treatment fees or financial matters related to your care please speak to a member of our patient services team or call 1300 135 727 during office hours.
