Vasectomy Pricing - The Vasectomist

WHEN DO I PAY?


You’re asked to pay $100 deposit when you book online or over the phone. You will of course ‘get it back’ off The Total price of $595.

The final amount of $495 is taken after the procedure.

The medicare rebate of $198.55 is paid immediately to you via Easyclaim. Bring your debit card so that the Rebate is paid into the linked bank. Please note that Ormeau does not have access to Easyclaim. We still arrange the rebate for you by sending digitally to medicare, with payment taking 24 hrs.

WHAT DOES THIS PRICE INCLUDE?


Consult, surgery, and aftercare consultations.

In the unlikely event that the vasectomy needs to be repeated, then it will be repeated at no extra cost.

Please note that we provide you with request forms for the post-vasectomy sample. The pathology companies charge you a small out pocket amount (eg $40) that is outside of our control.

CAN I CLAIM ON PRIVATE HEALTH?


Most vasectomies these days are carried out in a primary care ‘procedure room’ – much like a visit to the dentist. Vasectomy may also be performed in a hospital, or ‘day care unit’ which looks like a small hospital. The services at these facilities are designed for higher risk procedures that require sedation. Private health can be used for hospital-provided vasectomy but out of pocket costs are typically higher.

HOW MUCH IS THE MEDICARE REBATE?


The vasectomy medicare rebate varies slightly from year to year.

The rebate for the procedure is $198.55

Note that Medicare does not allow a rebate for a separate ‘time based consultation’ unless the consultation and the procedure are on separate days. We therefore claim $198.55 for your all-inclusive visit.
