Fees and Rebates
Fees: Perth Men’s Health is a private billing practice. Payment is required at the time of consultation and can be made with cash, cheque, EFTPOS or Credit Card.
Please note, standard consultation costs vary, and each doctor has their own individual billing practices. Please do not hesitate to discuss fees/Medicare rebates with our reception staff.
Referrals: If you have been recommended to see us by a GP or specialist, we encourage you to ask for a referral. Sexual health is affected by past health, lifestyle, medications and other factors therefore; to make the best assessment, we need to be aware of every aspect of your general health.
Dr Yin Min Hew is a specialist physician which means that a referral is required to maximise your Medicare rebate. Dr Hew can still be see patients without a referral but there will be no rebate.
If you do not have a regular Doctor a referral can be arranged within our practice. Please contact our staff if you would like to discuss this option.
Medicare: Once payment is made, reception staff can send your claim online to Medicare for you to receive the partial Medicare rebate into the bank account you have registered with Medicare.
The rebate is typically deposited into your bank account by Medicare within 24-48 hours of your appointment.
Please note, all consultations will incur a gap between the cost of the consultation and the Medicare rebate.
DVA: Dr Yin Min Hew facilitates appointments for all patients covered by Department of Veteran’s Affairs. If you are a DVA member but do not have a gold card, please advise us of this so we can see if the cost of your appointment will be covered by DVA. DVA have exceptions to what you are covered for if you are not a gold card holder and they can advise you of this if you are unaware.
