1 . Southern Cross Affiliated Provider
Since 2014 Julian has been an Affiliated Provider to Southern Cross Health Society for skin cancer assessment, biopsy, removal of pre-cancerous lesions and cysts. This ensures a very streamlined process for you as our patient. If you come to see us regarding skin cancer detection and/or treatment, we have automatic prior approval to see you for your assessment. We will then process the prior approval paperwork for Southern Cross Health Society to authorise the surgery costs. This is a significant time saver and means that treatment, should you need it, will be offered in a shorter timeframe.
The practice also has Affiliated Provider Contracts for eyelid surgery, (functional blepharoplasty). A prerequisite for this type of surgery is visual field testing to establish if you qualify for the procedure.
In 2017 Julian also contracted to provide minor breast reconstruction procedures under the Affiliated Provider Contract. For more information on the types of procedures that are covered please contact the practice or Southern Cross.
