First Visit Guide

We look forward to seeing you at Sydney Fibroid Clinic.

Remember to bring along your scans, reports, doctors’ correspondence and recent blood tests results.

You will also need to bring a valid referral from either your GP or gynaecologist.

You may email the relevant documents to us prior to your appointment.

For your scans, we prefer online access or hard copies, rather than CD-ROMs.

For us to advise you precisely, your medical imaging is important. You might already have ultrasound of pelvis. We do however rely heavily on MRI for assessment of your uterus.

Should you come to visit us from out of region and prefer a single visit assessment, check out our Fast-Track Program.

See below for further information.

    Procedure Fees (For insured patients):

    For Dr Liang’s procedures, if you have a private health insurance policy that covers the Medicare item numbers 35410 (UFE) or 35321 (UAE and other embolisations), most of the doctor’s fee, as well as most of the hospital theatre and accommodation fees are covered.

    There remains confusion regarding recent government’s health fund reform. Generally, 35410 and 35321 are covered under Silver and Gold levels of cover. Some funds classify 35410 under gynaecology and will cover under Bronze level. It is advisable to check with your health funds to make sure you are adequately covered.

    The hospital “theartre fee” and accommodation fee are covered by your health fund. You might have an “excess” payment, ranges from $300 to $1000.

    Dr Eisen Liang is a known gap provider. His gap fee ranges between $500 to $1,500, depending on your insurance policy. He does not require anaesthetist or surgical assistant, and therefore there is no other gap fees.

    Procedure Fees (For self-funding patients):

    If you are not insured or underinsured, the hospital fee (theatre fee and 1-night accommodation) is from $5,500, depending on the hospital you choose.

    Dr Liang’s fee is around  $2500 out-of-pocket.

    Your total out-of-pocket budget should be around $8,000.

    MRI Fee

    We rely on MRI to precisely assess and plan for your treatment. MRI is mandatory if we use embolisation to treat your fibroids or adenomyosis.

    Unfortunately, MRI for non-cancerous condition of uterus is not funded by Medicare.

    The fee is around $360. Sydney Fibroid Clinic do not have financial interest in MRI fees.

  • Referrals

    To be eligible for a Medicare rebate, you must supply Sydney Fibroid Clinic with a referral letter from your GP, gynaecologist or specialist referrer. If you do not have a gynaecologist, you may opt to see one of our associate gynaecologists in a joint consultation. This second specialist may charge a discounted fee, depending on the complexity of your case.

  • Payment Plans

    If you don’t have private health insurance and choose to self-fund, you may pay on a payment plan through Zip Money.

  • Bulk Billing

    Please note Sydney Fibroid Clinic is a private clinic and Dr Liang performs procedures in private institutions only. To sustain our private practice, we do not generally bulk bill our fees. A discounted fee may apply to patients with financial difficulties, at our own discretion.
