While the majority of common pathology tests are able to be bulk billed, however, genetic tests are typically not and so you may receive an account to pay prior to taking the test or occasionally after receiving the result.
Medicare and patient costs
Medicare is the Australian government health insurer and the cost of most pathology tests are covered.
There are some tests that Medicare does not cover the full costs associated with testing and in these cases a portion of the fee may be payable by you.
There are some tests that Medicare does not cover at all and in these cases the full costs associated with testing will be payable by you.
We aim to be fair and reasonable with our fee structure. Our fees are set at a level to ensure that we can deliver a high quality and comprehensive genetic pathology service to you.
Our prices are listed on our test menu. Methods to pay your account will vary according to your local Sonic Healthcare pathology laboratory that will be processing your request.
