Consultation with Dr Cooter - Medicare

Recommended Posts

Hi ladies, Ive got a consultation booked with Dr Cooter in a couple of weeks for a BA after reading all the great reviews about him on here and finding out a friend used him 7 years ago and spoke highly of him.

My question is when I booked the appointment the receptionist said that a gp referral won't get anything from Medicare as its a cosmetic procedure, yet i had a consultation with another doctor only a couple of weeks ago and got some money back from Medicare. Has anyone had this issue before?

it won't stop me seeing him as he seems to be one of the best in Adelaide, I just thought it was a bit odd.

That's interesting. I went to Dr Cooter and I'm pretty sure I got a medicare rebate on my consult. However, I remember the first consult was quite expensive, like $240. Consults after that were significantly cheaper though and my follow-up appointments didn't cost anything, even when I returned 2 years later to downsize.

Yes the receptionist said the consult was $240 and that Medicare only pay if it’s for medical reasons, not just cosmetic 🤷🏻‍♀️

I have ave a gp appointment next week anyway so will get a referral just in case.
