A: The orthopaedic surgeons at KOG treat WorkSafe and TAC patients. These consultations must be paid in full at the time of attendance by the patient. A portion of the fee can be claimed from WorkSafe, TAC or Medicare by the patient. KOG does not bill WorkSafe or TAC directly for patient consultations.
If surgery is required, the staff at KOG will need to obtain acceptance of financial liability from WorkSafe or TAC for the proposed surgery. Once acceptance is received a surgical date will be arranged and the patient will be informed. This surgery will be performed at no cost to the patient.
WorkSafe Patients must bring:
- Details of the insurance company responsible for the claim
- Employer details
- Claim number and date of injury (if known)
TAC patients must bring:
- TAC claim number and date of accident
