Fees:

An initial appointment with Dr Hugh Morgan is 55-60 minutes in length and costs $750.  Medicare will pay back $231.65 if you bring a referral from your GP or another doctor.  Your out of pocket cost for the first appointment is $518.35. Follow-up appointments are typically much shorter with smaller out of pocket costs.

At the time of booking, Dr Morgan requires you to leave a partial prepayment of $350 (which is fully refundable should you cancel your appointment with at least 2 business days' notice).  Missed appointments take valuable time away from others, and as such a prepayment is required to reduce the chance of non attendance.

The initial appointment includes a detailed history of your difficulties, as well as a more general medical, psychiatric and personal history, referral for medical tests if needed, along with a comprehensive discussion of the issues and a plan to address them.  A summary letter will be sent back to your referring doctor with a copy for you to keep.  The aim is to provide high quality care and transparent communication.

At the end of the initial session you and your clinician will decide on the duration and date of the next appointment.  Sometimes Dr Morgan will ask your GP to assist in the follow up plan in between appointments with him.

The safety net - how to budget for your health care:

The Medicare Safety Net system is designed to help make it more affordable for people to receive private health care if they have multiple health issues and need a lot of care. Each year, Medicare automatically keeps a tally of your Medicare-claimable services and counts your out of pocket costs (gap fees) towards the Medicare Extended Safety Net. 

Once your out of pocket costs each year (across all specialists, GPs and psychologists) reach a certain threshold amount, Medicare will pay back the usual rebate listed above PLUS 80% of the remaining gap fee for the rest of the year. The threshold for individuals and families is currently around $2133 per year of out of pocket costs, or $680.70 per year for Concession Card Holders and Family Tax Benefit Part A). Gap fees for inpatient treatment do not count towards the Safety Net.

You need to register with Medicare to have your family members counted as part of the same safety net threshold..
