We are committed to providing the highest level of care to all patients. If you are admitted as a public patient all hospital and medical costs will be covered by Medicare. Medicare eligible patients may elect to be treated as either a private or a public patient during an inpatient admission with us.
A Medicare ineligible patient is not eligible for Medicare benefits or free hospital treatment. As a Medicare ineligible visitor to Australia, you are responsible for the cost of hospital treatment and any related patient transport. Where possible you will be provided with an estimate of the cost by a Patient Liaison Officer.
If you are admitted as an eligible DVA or Compensable patient your costs will be covered by DVA or the relevant insurer.
