No. While many patients at the Mater have health insurance, you do not have to be insured to be admitted. Our office staff can provide information regarding costs prior to admission, so don’t hesitate to ask. Just ask your doctor to be admitted to the Mater.
For those patients who do have health insurance, it is wise to check what your private health insurance covers and any excesses or special conditions.
For any queries, contact our admission team to discuss.
Yes. Just ask your doctor about admitting you to Mater. Your doctor can discuss the best course of action for your treatment.
No. You will receive accounts from a variety of sources after you have received health care in hospital. The hospital will send you an account for any outstanding fees and you will also receive an account from your doctor and/or surgeon. If you have had any additional pharmaceuticals you will receive an account from the pharmacy who supplied these and if you had any tests, X-rays or scans you will receive accounts from these service providers.
You can find more information on your up and coming hospital admission by downloading the brochure from our Patients & Visitors (can we have a centralised patients & visitors section that links to specifics for facilities like CQ currently do?) area of our website. You can contact our caring staff who can also answer any questions you have.
