i received my invoice today asking me to pay for my mri scan done at westmead private hospital. i have to pay $513 in total but really only $170 and medicare will cover the rest.

how does this process work? lets say i make the full $513 by mailing a cheque or paying in person what do i do after?

on the letter it says im making the $170 payment and

medicare covers the rest. takes medicare 6 weeks to process the cheque, once i receive it i need to forward it to westmead hospital. if i am making the FULL payment 513 why i need to forward the cheque to them? shouldnt i only make payment for 170 and medicare sends me the remaining balance for me to send to the hospital.

can someone please explain, this is my first time going through this kind of process, sorry for the stupid questions.

one last thing can someone please tell me, by paying in person do i have to go back to westmead private hospital to make payment or where? and is a personal cheque allowed?

thank you.

Update: excuse the catergory if it's wrong, it was chosen and i didn't know where this belongs to
