13 Jan 2020 - Treatment

South Australian women are facing the highest out-of-pocket costs for breast cancer scans in the country. New figures show South Australian women are paying $126.42 on average for a scan if they go through the private sector. A federal Health Department spokesman said while the Government set Medicare rebates, actual fees were “a matter between the doctor and the patient” and they may alter their fees for particular individuals.
