St Lukes Medical Gap


From January 1, 2022, St Lukes introduced a maximum out-of-pocket cost per provider per episode of $500.

The latest Schedule of Fees (SL Fee Schedule 1 March 2024) is available for medical providers to assist in providing informed financial consent (using current MBS) to patients.

The latest Terms and Conditions (here) provide more information on the maximum allowable out-of-pocket cost.

Information for medical providers

St Lukes Medical Gap is designed to provide medical practitioners with the option to eliminate or reduce the medical gap for eligible St Lukes members requiring hospital inpatient services. This is done through the payment of an additional benefit over and above the Medicare Benefits Schedule (MBS) fee for those members who receive in-hospital treatment from a participating practitioner.

Eclipse Information

St Lukes uses ECLIPSE billing as the primary process for submission of medical gap claims. Using this form of billing has some significant benefits, particularly ensuring claims are processed in a timely manner, clear provision of information and once a claim is paid, electronic statement issuing. Most practice billing software has the ability to submit accounts via ECLIPSE. Further information on ECLIPSE billing can be found here.
