Testing Fees

The Australian Rickettsial Reference Laboratory is a specialised not-for-profit laboratory and the costs associated with testing contribute directly towards maintaining our high level of testing and diagnostic services. Any tests referred may be subject to out-of-pocket testing fees billed directly to the patient. For a full list of fees or to request a quote, please contact our Accounts department. 

Medicare Rebate

Medicare rebates may be available after the full payment of your invoice. The amount of Medicare rebate that can be claimed is dependent on the type of tests and the number of tests that are requested per referral. Please note, a Medicare rebate is not guaranteed. Approval for a Medicare rebate is subject to a valid Medicare card and if the Medicare threshold has not yet been reached. Please contact our Accounts Department for any inquiries.
