We bulk bill for all pathology tests covered by the Australian Medicare Benefits Schedule (MBS). However, some tests are not covered by the MBS or need to be sent away to highly specialised external providers. In such cases, you may need to pay in-part or in-full at the time of your test, or later.
Talk to your referring GP or specialist to understand if there will be any out-of-pocket expenses before visiting our service.
For more information on paying for pathology tests and Medicare, see healthdirect.
