Choosing your doctor
Under Medicare you can be treated as a public patient, at no charge, by a doctor appointed by the hospital. You can choose to be treated as a public patient even if you are privately insured.
If you choose to be admitted as a private patient, you can be treated by the doctor of your choice – providing that doctor has a right to practice at this hospital. An Admissions Officer will meet with you to discuss your level of coverage and policy details.
Regardless of whether you have private health insurance or don’t have private health insurance, the hospital will provide you with an estimate of expected hospital charges. Knowing how much your treatment will cost is called Informed Financial Consent. For more information visit the Private Health Insurance Ombudsman website:
