The RBHS can save you on out-of-pocket expenses on your planned surgery with our provider search.
To reduce your out-of-pocket costs, we have agreements with more than 36,000 doctors across Australia. This is called Access Gap. Search below to see if your doctor has taken part in our Access Gap in the past. Remember, it’s the personal choice of the doctor whether they participate in Access Gap and they can decide on a case-by-case basis.
How to use this search
Step 1. Search
- specialty and location
- specialist name
Step 2. Click on a specialist
On the search results page, click on any specialist you are interested in.
And you are asked if you would like information on Consultation fees or Procedure fees.
Step 3. Select procedure fees
Procedure fees are the charges for your surgery.
Health funds do not pay towards specialist consultation fees, because these are outside the hospital system (the good news is that Medicare rebates generally apply). The information you need is on the Procedure fees tab.
Step 4. View their Access Gap history statistics
Just remember that you need to ask your specialists to participate in Access Gap and ask for a quote before you go to hospital, known in the industry as 'Informed Financial Consent'.
