At Harley Day Surgery, our procedures are all completed on the same day which means no overnight stays in a hospital. As a day procedure hospital, we have fewer overheads than larger hospitals, resulting in a lower
admission fee for our patients.

For patients with private health cover

We have tier 2 agreements in place with all of the major private health insurers, allowing us to lodge claims on
your behalf.

For patients with no health cover

We can offer competitive day procedure rates compared to larger hospitals due to our day procedure facility setup.


Hospital Costs

The operating theatre, day-stay accommodations, and commonly used medications and dressings are all included in the hospital fee for your surgery. Any additional charges will be outlined prior to your procedure.

If you have private health insurance, we will submit a claim to your health fund on your behalf.

If your insurance policy has an excess or a gap, you must pay it at the time of admission. Your health insurance company will have informed us directly about the coverage they will provide.

If you do not have private health insurance, you will need pay the full account prior to admission.

A Harley Day Surgery staff member will contact you one or two days before your admission to confirm any hospital expenses for your surgery that must be paid on admission, also known as your Informed Financial Consent (IFC).
The cost of your admission is not covered by Medicare.


Payment Types

On the day of your admission we accept Visa, Mastercard, EFTPOS and cash, or you can pay by direct debit at any time prior to your admission.

Specialist or Dentist, Anaesthetist and Pathology costs

Please be aware that, in addition to Harley Day Surgery’s cost, your Clinician, Anaesthetist, Pathologist (if required) will issue additional invoices
for their services.

These accounts are not handled by Harley Day Surgery, and you must pay them directly.

Please note that the item numbers on the accounts you receive from these doctors will match those on your Hospital account, but they are for your
Doctor’s services, not the Hospital’s charges.


Health Insurance

Please confirm your level of hospital admission coverage (if applicable) with your health insurance provider prior to admission. If you have any queries once you have spoken to you provider, please contact our team for any questions related to your treatment.
