Hospital fees and charges

Hospital charges can include accommodation, use of theatre, prostheses and essential pharmacy items for your child’s care. These charges can vary depending on treatment required, length of stay, prostheses provided, accommodation category and individual private health insurance contracts.

Hospital costs do not include non-hospital or medical provider costs such as your child’s doctor, anaesthetist, pathology and X-rays. Additional charges may also include physiotherapy and the hire of physical aids.

If you have any questions about hospital fees and charges, including medications, please contact your health fund insurer directly to discuss any out-of-pocket expenses prior to the admission of your child.

All known hospital costs (other than those covered by contracted insurers) are payable on admission. They may be paid in cash (Australian dollars), by most credit cards, money orders or travellers cheques. The hospital also has EFTPOS facilities; however, it is a no cash-out service.
