Our consultation fees are work-effort based and are not bulk-billed but a Medicare rebate may apply. The initial visit (which may take up to 45 minutes) will cost $200, you may receive some money back from Medicare. We will follow up with you a week after your initial consultation and this will be bulk-billed.
CONSULTATIONS FOLLOWUP CONSULTATION
Your follow-up visit is important as this is the time when we review your progress and make adjustments to your treatment plan as well as being a requirement of the TGA for all approvals obtained.
Subsequent visits will be $90 due the time and complexity of the consultation. The fee is inclusive of the considerable time needed to submit applications and follow-up on any additional information required by the TGA.
COST OF THE PRODUCTS
While the Australian Government has not committed funding to have Medicinal Cannabis added to the Pharmaceutical Benefit Schedule, certain private health insurance companies, some accident compensation boards, and the Department of Veteran Affairs have come forward to assist patients. Please make your own enquiries. The prices of Medical Cannabis can vary greatly from $100-$500 per product, depending on the strength, volume/quantity and form. The Doctor will select an appropriate product(s) to help your condition, taking into consideration ease of use of the product(s), dosing frequency and cost effectiveness of the treatment plan.
All drugs may have unexpected adverse effects, and like any other medicine, Medicinal Cannabis may or may not be right for you. It is important you speak to our clinic team about any concerns you have about your treatment during your visits.
Our experienced team members will work with you to determine the most suitable product. As the TGA has indicated, every prescription is a trial of treatment and we know that there will be some who may be disappointed. There may be a need to choose alternative formulations or ratios of CBD/THC where circumstances permit. This will be decided during follow-up visits. We welcome your valued feedback.
