What are Skin Checks?
We understand that no skin type is immune to skin cancer, so we provide a full skin check service.
This involves one of our qualified nurses performing a systematic total body check using a hand held dermatoscope. A doctor will then see each patient to check each mole and lesion and discuss a treatment program if required. Some treatment may be performed during this skin check appointment.
Each total body skin check takes up to half an hour and is a good option for individuals who have had an initial mole map and have been advised that a skin check is more appropriate for them.
New fees as of 1st of January 2020:
DVA patients are bulk billed for their skin checks.
Concession patients will be charged $70 for a 30 minute skin check.
A Medicare rebate applies, leaving an out of pocket cost of approx. $30.
Non-concession patients will be charged $90 for a 30 minute skin check.
A Medicare rebate applies, leaving an out of pocket cost of approx. $50.
NB: It is essential that the medical staff have a clear view of your skin so when attending a skin check – please NO MAKE UP, NAIL POLISH, SUNSCREEN OR MOISTURISER.
