No Health Insurance?

If you have no health insurance there are two opinions you have:

  • Public patient
  • Self insured

Public patient

Dr Thomas operates at two public hospitals, Blacktown and Mt Druitt.

If you are a public patient you will not receive a bill for any services whilst in hospital. These services include the anaesthetist, assistant surgeon, theatre fees, prosthesis charges, pathology, x-rays and radiology and physiotherapy.

You will be placed on a waiting list which is organised and managed by each hospital.

Self Funded:

If you are a self-funded or self-insured patient ie no private health fund hospital cover, and wish your surgery to be performed in a private hospital, an estimate of surgical fees will be given to you at the time of consultation with Dr Thomas.
