Here at Heart Services, we understand that many of our patients are cautious about leaving their homes or attending busy medical practices during the pandemic.
We would like to reassure you that we are staying informed with current government guidelines, have stringent cleaning guidelines for our staff, and are practicing social distancing both between staff and in the waiting areas.
If you have further concerns about attending your appointment, please feel free to contact us. Alternatively, you can contact your referring doctor to discuss the urgency of you test.
If you have travelled overseas in the last month or have been in contact with anyone who has, had direct contact with someone with a confirmed case of COVID-19, or have any flu like symptoms, please call us to reschedule your appointment.
We thank you all for support and understanding during these uncertain times.
Restructuring of Cardiac Imaging services available on the Medicare Benefits Schedule (MBS) will take effect on 1st August 2020. Central to this restructuring is the referral requirements placed on the cardiac services provided by Logan Heart Services.
Referrals that do not meet criteria outlined in the MBS may be unable to be claimed under the scheme, resulting in the full fee to be passed on to the patient.
The following information is taken from the quick reference guide provided by the MBS Review Taskforce and outlines services specific to General Practitioner referred services provided by Logan Heart Services.
The complete quick reference guide can be found at: http://www.mbsonline.gov.au/internet/mbsonline/publishing.nsf/Content/Factsheet-CardiacServices1Aug20
