Medical Acupuncture Tasmania - What will it cost?
Medical Acupuncture Tasmania - Acupuncture & laser therapy
What will it cost me?
Each medical consultation for acupuncture is charged according to the time you spend with the doctor and the complexity of the consultation. Your initial visit will be a long consultation during which your problems & suitability for treatment will be assessed (see What happens?). People with more complex conditions require more time for assessment. You will be advised if a prolonged consultation or several longer consultations are required.

You will be informed of the  number of treatments recommended for your condition so you will be able to calculate out of pocket costs for treatment.

If you do not have a health care card you can expect a gap of approximately $55 for each visit, regardless of the length of the visit.
