Southern Radiology is an independent provider of Diagnostic Imaging services at the Prince of Wales Private Hospital and charges modest out of pocket fees for claimable services above the Medicare and Health Fund rate. As of 1 April 2016, the out-of-pocket fees are capped at $1,500 per inpatient stay (excluding non-claimable services).
Should you require any Diagnostic Imaging during your stay as an inpatient, you will be sent an invoice from Southern Radiology.
Southern Radiology does not directly invoice your private health fund, this means invoices will be issued in your name, however, claims can be lodged electronically for most health funds.
Any services not able to be claimed from Medicare and your private health fund are your responsibility to pay and are not included in the capped out-of-pocket fee.
Please note that health-fund-excess does not contribute to Medical or ancillary service costs. Health funds consider these services to be separate from the costs associated with your hospitalisation.
