What if I want to pay for my operation myself?

If you do not have private insurance, it is possible for you to personally cover the costs of your treatment at a private hospital. This also applies to overseas patients, those with travel medical insurance and others who may not be covered by Medicare and so don’t qualify for treatment in an Australian public hospital. The advantages of this is that there is no prolonged waiting time and you are operated on by the specialist surgeon of your choice. If you are interested in this option, we can arrange a quotation for you. Note that the hospital generally requires an upfront payment prior to admission.
