Factors that vary the fee you are charged include:
- the operation you are having
- the duration of your operation
- the need for specialised anaesthetic techniques or monitoring
- the state of your health and your age
Usually you will be required to pay only the gap portion of your fee. Your health fund will be billed directly for the rebate portion. Some health funds require that you pay the full amount of your anaesthetic fee to your anaesthetist and then claim your rebate from your fund. If you are uninsured, you will be required to pay the full amount in advance of your procedure.
We want you to be fully informed of the financial implications of your anaesthetic and ask that you contact us for an estimate as soon as possible.

Narcosia specialists are like-minded doctors who operate individual Specialist Anaesthetist practices. The Narcosia Service Entity provides Business Services to the Specialist Anaesthetists under terms of a Service Agreement. As such, payments are made to individual doctors rather than the Service Entity. The Service Agreement is not one of partnership or a contract of employment between the Service Entity and the Specialist Anaesthetist.
