  • Gap

    The 'medical gap' is the difference between the doctor's fee for services provided in hospital and the combined Medicare benefit and health insurance benefit. The patient must pay this amount, unless the specialist has participated in the CBHS Corporate Health Access Gap scheme. You may also need to make a payment for non-medical hospital services, consultations in a specialist's rooms, or ancillary services.
