‘No out of pocket costs at both South Coast Radiology private hospital sites*’
South Coast Radiology is proud to announce that our MRI service at Pindara Private Hospital has been selected by the Australian Government as one of ten new locations in Australia to be awarded a full Medicare subsidy. Pindara Private Hospital MRI along with our existing fully subsidized MRI at John Flynn Private Hospital distinguishes South Coast Radiology as the only private imaging provider on the Gold Coast with fully Medicare subsidized MRI services.
South Coast Radiology have been servicing the local community with a fully bulk billed MRI service at John Flynn Private Hospital for over 20 years, and as of November 2018 have offered a fully bulk billed MRI services at both our John Flynn and Pindara Private Hospital sites for all Medicare eligible exams.
As a result of these changes, inpatients will be charged the schedule fee and outpatients will be bulk billed resulting in no out of pocket costs at both hospital locations. Our Robina and Southport MRI services remain partially funded under Medicare, meaning patients will continue to be bulk billed where Medicare criteria is met.
South Coast Radiology’s MRI service is available for emergency 24 hours/7 days a week at both hospital locations. We also service patients on Saturday and Sunday, between 7am – 6pm.
Our booking agents will assist in directing our patients to the most appropriate location.
South Coast Radiology offers MRI services at the following locations:
* MRI exam must have a Medicare eligible item number and meet Medicare criteria.
Full Medicare subsidy effective 1 November 2018.
