Re: My result

Hi aina_abdullah,

Are you a public patient in a public hospital?

 

The first step is to find out from your surgeon and she or he can give you their fees.

Pretty much all of the costs are available before you go in. Discuss with the hospital and surgeon your financial situation.

My surgeons and hospital fees were pretty reasonable and were available up front.  I was a private patient, but it wasn't like I was attending a private hospital or some super expensive surgeon.

Contentrat on getting the costs first. Don't panic yet.

Re: My result

Just wondering how you went with the doctor.

If you qualify for Medicare and are a public patient in a public hospital, there should be no cost to you for any surgeries or admissions.

Sometimes patients are sent to see a specialist on a private basis so they can get placed on the waiting list more quickly than if they waited to see a specialist at the clinics. That sounds like what might have happened in your case.
