Question about Skin Resurfacing: is there a medicare rebate for fractional skin resurfacing using q1031

Question:

Is there a medicare rebate for fractional skin resurfacing using a co2 and or erbium laser for wrinkles/sun damage. skin pigmentation?

Answer:

There is only a medicare rebate for non-fraction erbium or co2 laser. The condition treated must be scarring of the face or neck, rather than sun damage/wrinkles. The medicare safety net also applies to this rebate, when your out of pocket fees have exceeded your threshold.  You get an 80% rebate then.
