Insurance & Accounts
Private Health Insurance
You may find that your health fund doesn’t fully cover your stay, and that an out of pocket balance may occur. Estimated out of pocket expenses are payable on admission.
You’re not required to pay the portion of your account that is covered by your health fund, as we’ll claim benefits on your behalf.
Self Insured Patients
Self insured patients are required to pay the estimated hospital account at the time of admission.
Department of Veterans' Affairs
Department of Veterans' Affairs (DVA) patients will have their account directly sent to the DVA for payment. See DVA for information about DVA services.
Workers Compensation patients need to ensure their admission has been approved by the appropriate Insurance Company prior to admission.
After you leave hospital, you may receive bills for other charges incurred during your stay that are not the responsibility of the hospital. They are therefore charged separately, and may include fees relating to:
- Your treating doctor
- Allied health
