Why Have a No Gap Surgery Page?

Best website practice encourages explaining your policies in full. Including a page covering your No Gap Pricing Policy is important to more and more patients and in a competitive surgical environment simply being found for this search term can mean many more visitors.

The No Gap Surgery page needs to address your pricing policy for procedures that are covered by Private Health Insurance but also attract extra fees.

Whether or not your practice promotes such a pricing policy is not the point. To effectively engage with patients looking for your service this question needs to be addressed and explained.

The No Gap Pricing Policy page can cover pricing policies like:

No Gap Pricing

Low Gap Pricing

Known Gap Pricing

Below is some sample content to consider:

For your convenience, we have a HICAPS terminal onsite so we can claim your insurance benefit direct from your health fund after your appointment, as long as you bring your current working health fund card.

*Conditions for the No Gap Surgical Service
