Private health insurance
Typically, a consultation for checking a spot or mole of concern would not be covered by most insurers. However, clinical photography may be covered. Insurers may require that the service is not covered by Medicare. Because there are so many variations in insurance policies, we cannot guarantee to have knowledge of the level of cover provided by your insurer. We recommend that you ask your insurer about their conditions before you attend for your appointment.
