Referrals

Referrals

A current GP or specialist referral is required for all services. Referrals will be triaged and our team will call patients to arrange an appointment time.

Please download our referral form and fax it to (07) 4052 8060  or email to RSS.CAI@ramsayhealth.com.au

A template referral form for GP clinic software is also available for download.

From 1 November 2018, Medicare Benefits Schedule rules for sleep studies have changed. General Practitioners who want to directly refer patients for a diagnostic sleep study (laboratory or home based) must use approved assessment tools to determine patients’ eligibility.

 

Medicare eligibility criteria:

STOP-BANG score ≥ 4

OR

OSA-50 score ≥ 5

OR

Berlin Questionnaire – high risk

AND

Epworth Sleepiness Scale score ≥ 8

These tools are included on our referral form.

If General Practitioners wish to refer patients for a sleep physician review prior to a sleep study, completion of these tools is not required.
