The costs associated with your cancer treatment and recovery will depend on the type of treatment you receive.
In general, your private health insurance will cover the majority of the costs of cancer treatment that you receive as an inpatient at Lake Macquarie Private Hospital.
You may need to pay additional fees for:
- Your doctor
- Any regular scans
- Allied health services (such as physiotherapy)
You can access a limited number of Medicare-funded allied health appointments through a chronic disease management or mental health plan from your GP. There may be a small gap payment associated with these appointments.
