If you are not eligible for Medicare and you are not a resident of a country that has a Health Care Agreement with Australia, you will be required to pay for all hospital services. Charges may vary depending on the treatment provided and are based on fees set by the NSW Department of Health at Albury Campus and full cost recovery in accordance with the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services at Wodonga Campus.
Uninsured Medicare Ineligible Patients will be required to pay an initial deposit of $1000 prior to/or at the time of admission. Upon discharge, all fees and charges will be calculated and invoiced. You will be responsible for full payment of the remaining balance within 14 days of discharge.
Overseas patients holding an appropriate level of Health Cover with an Australian Health Fund are required to pay the applicable Excess attached to their policy, in lieu of the $1000 deposit. Hospital Accommodation Fees will then be submitted to the Health Fund directly. In the event of non- payment or short payment, any balance of the account will become the responsibility of the patient.
Overseas patients holding travel insurance via any 3rd party insurer are required to pay for all costs up front and claim a reimbursement personally from their insurer.
One of our friendly Patient Liaison Officers can assist with any questions in relation to fees, charges & payments.
Whilst every effort is made to provide an accurate estimate of expenses, final costs are not known until post discharge, and can vary depending upon a number of factors including length of stay, variations to treatment, any procedures, prosthesis or sundry charges.
We accept major credit cards, cheque, cash, EFTPOS or direct bank deposit.
