The Medical Costs Finder helps consumers understand the cost of common medical procedures provided by specialists in Australia. It covers common hospital procedures patients want to know more about. The tool’s results are based on the most recent publicly available Government data about what people have paid for procedures. The tool allows users to see how much people have paid out of pocket for a procedure and to compare the costs estimated by their specialists and other health providers for a hospital procedure with the typical costs for the procedure in their area. Medicare and any private health insurance payments which could affect the out of pocket costs a consumer may pay is also displayed.
