A referral is required if you wish to claim a rebate from Medicare for your consultation or surgery.
It is not necessary to have a referral to see Dr O'Mahony for cosmetic surgery. Cosmetic surgery procedures do not attract a Medicare rebate.
Outpatient services such as consultations, minor procedures, pathology and radiology tests are not usually covered by Health Insurance, although some costs can be claimed through Medicare.
If your question is not answered here, please do not hesitate to ask Dr O'Mahony via our contact us page.
