What is an Iron Infusion
An iron infusion is a minor procedure when an iron containing medicine is infused directly into the blood circulation via an intravenous (IV) drip.
The iron containing preparation circulates through the blood stream and is delivered to the body organs that require iron for normal functioning.
An iron infusion is safe and can be administered as a 1-hour procedure at our Medical Centre.
Fees for Iron Infusions.
We are a bulk-billing medical centre however there will be an out-of-pocket cost for this procedure and this procedure will not be bulk-billed. If you are registered with Medicare you will be eligible for a Medicare rebate. The out-of-pocket cost to you is the payment difference between our fee and the Medicare rebate. You are also responsible for the cost of purchasing the script of FERINJECT® from your local pharmacy. If you are registered with Medicare the cost for FERINJECT® is the standard Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS) script fee.
We aim to provide the best quality medical care and this level of service will incur a gap or out-of-pocket payment. This payment is the difference between our fee and the Medicare rebate.
