*Conditions Apply – please call 1300 788 508 for more information. Please note Bulk Billing is not performed on weekends.
Payment at the time of service
Canberra Imaging Group requires full payment of your account on the day of your appointment. We accept cash, EFTPOS, cheque or credit card (Visa and Mastercard).
Speeding up your Medicare refund claim
If your examination attracts a Medicare rebate, part of your full payment will be refunded to you by Medicare.
Canberra Imaging Group has Medicare Australia online claiming available at all of our clinics. This means that if you settle your account in full on the day of your examination and have previously registered your bank account details with Medicare Australia, your Medicare rebate can be paid directly into your account within approximately 3 working days.
We offer gap only payments to all of our patients, we attempt to keep our gap payments (your out of pocket cost) to a minimum whilst maintaining the highest standards in imaging technology.
CIG allows you to pay the gap amount only on the day of service rather than the full amount of the invoice if it is eligible for a Medicare rebate, although you may still decide to pay the full amount depending on your own situation.
Canberra Imaging Group has arrangements with a large number of private health funds which ensures a ‘no gap’ policy for in-hospital patients. Check with us or your health fund prior to being admitted to hospital.
