Pay Your Bill
As a private pathology provider, IQ Pathology will need to bill you for any tests your doctor requests. These tests may have been conducted while you were in hospital, day surgery or in your GPs surgery.
Receiving a Bill from us
If we have a mobile phone number for you, we’ll send you an SMS with a secure link for you to be able to download a copy of your invoice.
To access the invoice you’ll be prompted to enter the postcode that was part of your address on the request form. If we don’t have a mobile phone number for you, we’ll send the invoice via post.
You can change your preferences for how you receive your invoice at any time, or get help with your invoice, by calling our Accounts team on 1800 350 046 during business hours.
If your mobile phone number is recorded on your pathology request form, we will send you a text message with a secure link to be able to view / print / download your bill. When you click on the link, you’ll be directed to a secure page where you will be prompted to enter the postcode for your address that was on your request form.
If we don’t have a mobile phone number recorded for you, or the number is incorrect, we will send the invoice to the address that was on your request form.
Outpatient procedures are partially claimable through Medicare, however they are not covered by private health insurance. You will be responsible for any out-of-pocket expenses. Your pathology account will only be bulk billed to Medicare if the requesting Doctor has specified this on the request form and it has been signed by the patient; if the practice that you attended is a “bulk billing” practice; or if you are the holder of a government pension or concession card. If this is the case, you will not receive an invoice from IQ Pathology. It will be sent directly to Medicare.
If you receive an invoice from IQ Pathology, you are able to claim a portion back from Medicare; however you’ll still need to pay the balance. The maximum out-of-pocket (full private fee) expense for an outpatient is $100.
If you are the holder of a Veterans’ Affairs Gold Card your account will be billed directly to the Department of Veterans’ Affairs for payment. You will not incur out-of-pocket expenses.
Due to privacy legislation, we do not have the authority to give information other than that which is outlined on your account. For clarification on testing and your results please speak directly with your doctor.
