Private Inpatient Fee Policy

Mater Pathology has ‘No-Gaps Agreements’ with most major health funds and if you are insured with these funds, your account for Medicare eligible tests performed while you are in hospital will be sent to your health fund for full payment.

Uninsured patients will receive an account for their Medicare eligible tests. Once the account is paid, we will forward your receipt to enable you to lodge a claim with Medicare and obtain your rebate for eligible tests.

If you are a Self Insured private patient you are responsible for your account. Once the account is paid, we will send you out a receipt to enable you to lodge a claim with Medicare and obtain your rebate for eligible tests.

Any Non Medicare rebatable test will incur a full out-of-pocket cost to the patient. Please visit Medicare Benefits Schedule Online to find the latest schedule. Alternatively, please refer to our current price list for tests not included on the Medicare Schedule.
