Choosing your doctor

Public patients

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.

Private patients

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 do not have private health insurance, there is no out of pocket expenses.
