Perth Radiation Oncology (Wembley) and Shenton House (Joondalup)
Genesis CancerCare Western Australia is a privately owned medical practice and patient fees are charged at both Perth Radiation Oncology and Shenton House to ensure that we are able to continue to provide the highest quality, timely and comprehensive radiation therapy services.
You do not require private health insurance to attend either of our two private centres for radiation therapy.
Our fees cover and include the following services:
- All consultations with your chosen or recommended radiation oncologist
- CT simulation scan
- Treatment planning (radiation dosimetry)
- All treatments, including X-ray imaging used for treatment setup verification
- Radiation therapy nursing services
The total cost of radiation therapy is largely covered through Medicare via the Medicare Benefits Scheme and the Extended Medicare Safety Net programs. These programs, however, do not cover the full component of your treatment costs and there will be an out-of-pocket expense associated with your treatment.
A comprehensive quote of your out-of-pocket costs for radiation treatment can be calculated by one of our helpful administration staff members after your treatment regime has been confirmed by your radiation oncologist. This takes place usually after your first consultation. Please note that your private health insurance will not cover any part of your radiation therapy as you will be treated as an outpatient.
GenesisCare provides flexible payment options ensuring that all patients, irrespective of their financial situation, can access care.
EasyPay, a GenesisCare initiative, makes treatment more affordable by facilitating payment of the Medicare reimbursements in a more efficient manner.
EasyPay is available only for private patients being treated at Perth Radiation Oncology or at Shenton, or for patients choosing to be treated privately at one of our public facilities (Fiona Stanley Hospital or the South West Radiation Oncology Service).
More information can be obtained from a member of our patient services team.
Fiona Stanley Hospital (Murdoch) and the South West Radiation Oncology Service (Bunbury)
Through GenesisCare’s partnership with the WA Department of Health, there are no out-of-pocket costs relating to radiation oncology appointments, or treatment, at Fiona Stanley Hospital or the South West Radiation Oncology Service.
