About Our Fees
At Q-CLASS we are dedicated to providing timely, high quality and compassionate care.
We are a private billing clinic. The following information regarding our fees is provided as we believe in financial transparency and are keen to ensure that our clients have a clear understanding of the costs associated with appointments and hospital admissions.
Our fees are in line with or lower than most other specialists. We also provide many additional services at no additional cost.
Our reception staff will provide additional information at the time of booking an appointment.
Fees for Drs Burgess, Suresh & Chacko
Respiratory and Sleep Paediatricians
The consultation fee for a new appointment ranges from $320 – $405 before the Medicare rebate. The maximum out of pocket cost after the Medicare rebate ranges from $168-$185 depending upon the Medicare item number charged during the consultation. Follow-up appointments are charged at a lower rate.
Unlike most practices there is no additional charge for other tests or procedures performed during an appointment. For example there is no additional charge if your doctor arranges lung function testing, actigraphy, exercise testing etc.
Telehealth consultations (video) are available for your convenience. Most consultations are billed at the same rate as face to face consultations and Medicare rebates are often available. Please contact our reception staff for further details.
Hospital admissions and Hospital sleep studies:
There is no gap payment from Q-CLASS doctors for patients when admitted to the Mater Hospital for treatment or investigation including sleep studies, bronchoscopy or overnight oximetry. Although, fees from your health fund, other specialists or hospital may apply.
Home sleep studies and home oximetry
Some of our physicians offer home sleep studies and home oximetry which are commonly chosen by parents because their child is not covered by private health insurance. There is no private health fund or Medicare rebate for these services. We provide these services at a reduced fee (we do not make a profit from them). The charge for a home sleep study is $180 and home oximetry is $100.
There is limited free onsite parking.
Families experiencing significant financial strain
If your family is experiencing significant financial strain and you have a health care card or pension please talk with our reception staff.
