A       Dr WIlson is a 'known gap' provider with most health funds. This means that you will be provided with a gap account that is required to be paid 2 days prior to your surgery date. These gaps will vary depending on what health fund you are with and the procedure you are having.  Please enquire with reception staff for further information.  Dr Wilson does not have an agreement with NIB, Qantas Assure, AAMI and APIA. Reception staff can explain this further on request.
