Self-insured (Uninsured)

Patients may be able to choose private admission even if they do not have private health insurance. Self-funded patients will be liable to pay the following:

  • The gap between the Medicare benefit and any specialist’s charge
  • The gap for diagnostic services (medical imaging and laboratory), however some of these services may be bulk billed to Medicare, that is no ‘gap’
  • Hospital accommodation fees (bed charge)
