Hospital Fees and Insurance

If you are an Australian resident, you are eligible to receive free health care regardless of your financial situation. However, if you are not a resident of Australia, you will have to pay the full cost of your health care before you are admitted to Bowral & District Hospital or as soon after as is practical. This payment can be made either in cash or by credit card.

If you are claiming your health care under compensation insurance such as Accident or Workers Compensation, you will need to choose whether you are admitted to Hospital as a private (chargable) or Hospital (non-chargable) patient. This will determine what costs you will be charged for in the event that your insurance claim is unsuccessful.

For more information on Bowral & District Hospital fees and charges, please contact our Admissions Department.

Private patients

You may decide to use your private Health Insurance before, during or after your stay in Hospital. As a private patient, all co-payments and excess fees will be waived if you enter the Hospital through the Emergency Department.

If any admitted costs are incurred, the Patient Liaison Officer will discuss these fees with you. All claims to Medicare and your health fund will be processed automatically on your behalf. Hospital Admissions and Ward Clerical staff can assist you with any further enquiries you may have.

While you are in Camden or Campbelltown Hospitals as a private patient, you will receive free television and local telephone calls. Money received from private health funds is given directly to the Hospital to assist in providing services to all patients.
