Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need a referral?
You may see Dr Moss without a referral, but you will require a referral from your GP or other doctor to obtain a claim through Medicare. This will allow you to receive part of your payment back from Medicare for the initial and any subsequent consultations. Your referring GP will receive a report following your initial consultation.
Does private health insurance cover my consultation?
No, private health insurance does not cover your consultation. However, your private health insurance may cover certain non-PBS medications prescribed by the doctor.
How long is my referral valid?
Referrals from your GP remain valid for 12 months from the initial consultation. Subsequent consultations for the same condition are covered during this period. A new referral is required after this 12 month period, or if you need to see Dr Andrew Moss for an unrelated condition. A referral from another specialist is valid for 3 months.
What is the waiting period to see a dermatologist?
The current waiting list is approximately 6 – 8 weeks for an initial consultation with Dr Andrew Moss.
If your GP considers you to have an urgent condition, they can request an urgent appointment.
