Perth Radiological Clinic’s approach to billing
PRC is a private radiological practice that provides high quality diagnostic imaging services using only the most up-to-date technology and highly trained medical professionals. Our aim is to support the community to access affordable quality diagnostic imaging.
Most of our services are bulk billed for Pension and Health Care Card holders.
We also offer bulk billing (no-gap) on the following Medicare eligible services:
- Diagnostic MRI* (excluding breast MRI)
- X-ray (excluding OPG)
- Diagnostic CT (excluding doctor procedures and cone beam CT)
- Diagnostic ultrasound* (excluding doctor procedures, breast, nuchal and anatomy scans)
Bulk billed patients will have no out-of-pocket gap fees to pay on the day of their appointment.
For most other services provided, PRC charge an out-of-pocket gap fee. Our fee structure is based on the investigation or procedure required, the cost to provide the service and the level of contribution (if any) from Medicare.
PRC has a compassionate approach to billing. Medically urgent scans will always be seen, regardless of our billing policy. Patients who are facing financial difficulty are asked to discuss their specific situation at the time of booking. Payment plans can be arranged.
