Medical rebates and surgeon fees
Medicare rebates cannot sustain any surgical practice that offers a safe and high quality surgical care.
Medicare rebates have been frozen since 2012 with no plans to increase in fees in the near future. The inflation, wages, medical equipment, rents have risen Multifood in this time.
We do not bulk bill at Esmee clinic. However we try our best to accommodate pensioners and the families of those who served in armed forces of Australia.
Dr Mahadik has an extensive experience in skin cancer work working in various Plastic Surgery Departments across Sydney. He has operated more than 1700 simple and complex skin cancers with excisions, skin grafts and flaps
He offers a flat fee for all skin cancer work. Claiming medicare rebates is getting increasingly harder and not worth the time wasted. You cannot claim these rebates through our clinic.
We however have chosen to incorporate them in our pricing model so you don’t miss out on anything.

Most cosmetic surgery procedures don’t attract a medicare rebate. Hence your private health insurance won’t cover it.
We do not take the hassle of negotiating with medicare about the minimal rebates that rarely may apply for your situation. We rather incorporate that cost to reduce our quote.
Our practice will ask you to deposit surgical costs upfront no later than 2 wks before the surgery
You are required to pre pay the consultation when you make a booking. That helps us to keep aside that time for a detailed discussion.
|Cancellation before 48 hrs of the consult||full refund|
|Cancellation within 48 hrs||No refund|
|Rescheduling the booking||No fees|
