Health fund cover?

At this time, Medicare does not cover ingrown toenail procedures undertaken by podiatrists. If you have private health insurance ‘Extra’s’ cover, there will commonly be a rebate for the surgical fee. This can be variable, and it is recommended you check with your individual health fund on what rebates are applicable to you. Your podiatrist will provide you with a written estimate of the surgical fee after your initial consultation, which has the relevant item numbers that can be used when contacting your private health insurer.
