Marina endeavours to ensure that premium imaging services are accessible to all members of the community. We recognise that health care is often expensive and, as one of Australia’s first radiology companies to introduce bulk billing, we are proud to bulk bill the majority of studies.
The few studies which are billed privately, and therefore require payment on the day of service, include obstetric ultrasounds, Cone Beam CT, some interventional procedures and some MRI’s. However, a partial rebate is available through Medicare upon presentation of your receipt for obstetric ultrasounds and interventions. Please note some allied health referred studies may also incur a partial out of pocket cost.
Please ensure you bring your valid Medicare card on the day of your appointment. Should you have any queries regarding the price of your scan, please do not hesitate to contact us on 1300 0 XRAYS.
Further benefits apply for patients who hold a valid Age or Disability Pension Concession Card. Upon presentation of this card at the time of the appointment, you will also be bulk billed for all interventional procedures.
Department of Veteran Affairs (DVA)
DVA GOLD CARD – DVA gold card holders will be completely covered for all Medicare rebateable studies. When booking your appointment, please mention your gold card status, and bring it with you on the day of your scan.
DVA WHITE CARD – DVA white card holders need to consult the Department of Veteran Affairs prior to your appointment to confirm if your scan will be covered by them.
