Blood tests (pathology)

When these tests are required as part of your authorised in-hospital treatment, the Scheme will pay for these tests at 100% of the Scheme Rate. Pathology tests are subject to formulary on TFG Health.

Please ask your Doctor to use the Discovery Pathology form when he or she requests these tests.

The Discovery Pathology form is designed to:

  • Make doctors aware of the costs associated with different codes
  • Enable doctors to request only the specific tests they deem clinically appropriate
  • Track the use of our form using the unique Discovery Health barcode in the bottom right hand corner.
