Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

When patients are admitted for day surgery it means they are able to have their procedure and return home on the same day. There is no overnight stay required.

It is important that you have a full understanding of the costs of your day surgery. Our team will provide you with an Informed Financial Consent in writing and will discuss this with you over the phone or in person after a discussion with your surgeon.

Your fee includes the cost of the day surgery, day-stay accommodation fee, labour fee (nurses and administrative) and commonly used drugs and dressings. If you have Private Health insurance, BVDH will claim the costs directly from your health fund on your behalf.

If you have an excess or a gap with your level of private health cover, or you do not have private health cover and are using a “self-pay” option the full amount that has been quoted to you is required before your procedure.
