Approximate doctor's fee for an uninsured traveller in Australia:

Would you be able to give me a rough idea of the approximate, out-of-pocket cost to an uninsured tourist in Australia for:

1. a visit to a doctor's office (or to an emergency ward) for a moderate cut requiring just a few stitches;
2. a visit to an internist's office for an in-office consultation only;
3. treatment in the emergency ward for a broken leg;
4. an MRI
5. the rental of a 24-hour holter monitor?
Thanks; just a general guideline would be very helpful.

Hello,

Welcome to our site and thanks for your question. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will do whatever I can to help you.

 

The answers are:

1. $175-275 (office) $ 350-550 (ER)

2. $65-125

3. $750-2500 depending on how bad the break is. x-rays, mri, casting, etc.

4. Depends on what part is getting the MRI. It can be anywhere from $250-2500

5. A Holter will cost at least $1000 for 24 hours

 

The purchase of short-term insurance for visitors to Australia who don't have a reciprocal insurance agreement with the country is really a good idea.

 

All the best,

 

Schuyler
