THE CUT RATE

Men's Health (Australia) - - HEALTH -

If you live in a re­mote area it’s prob­a­bly go­ing to be your lo­cal GP who will have to help, and it’s likely to be done with lo­cal anaes­thetic only. Urol­o­gists can con­duct the pro­ce­dure, and prices vary. At Marie Stopes, the pro­ce­dure costs around $660 with se­da­tion (or $600 with a lo­cal) af­ter Medi­care, and with pri­vate med­i­cal in­sur­ance you will gen­er­ally only pay your hos­pi­tal ex­cess. The best way to start is to go and dis­cuss it with your GP, who will present you with the dif­fer­ent op­tions and ar­range a re­fer­ral.
