Will I be out of pocket for my surgery?
Mr Butorac has an agreement with most health funds to charge a “known gap” for procedures. Patient out-of-pocket expenses are minimised through this arrangement.
The gap is typically $200-$400 depending on the complexity of the surgery. This amount will be provided to you during your consultation.
