Informed Financial Consent

Dr O’Neill participates in the no-gap arrangement or gap cover scheme with most health funds. This means in effect that the full charge to Dr O’Neill will be the amount that your fund rebates for TOP COVER for all in-patient procedures. The account for your inpatient procedure will be sent directly to the participating fund.

Please check with us that your health fund is one with which we have a reciprocal arrangement.

The advice does not relate to services provided by other doctors including radiologists, physicians, anaesthetists or pathologists, nor any other costs associated with your stay, e.g. accommodation, theatre fee, pharmacy or physiotherapy. It also relates only to the doctor’s fee for inpatient services. Most patients will have some out of pocket expenses for appointments but these will be detailed at the time the appointment is booked.

Please refer to you health fund for additional information not provided above. Dr O’Neill has no financial interest, other that the fee for service, in any products or hospital services recommended.
