Health Insurer Relationships
Healthe Care Hospitals have agreements with major health insurance funds. Under these agreements, you are not required to pay the portion of your account that is covered by your health fund, as we will claim these benefits on your behalf.
We also accept patients from health funds with whom we don’t have agreements however, you may be required to pay an estimate of all expenses on or prior to admission.
We’ll verify your insurance prior to your admission.
You may find that your health fund doesn’t fully cover your stay, and that an out of pocket balance may occur. Estimated out of pocket expenses are generally payable on admission.
Self Insured Patients
Self insured patients are required to pay the estimated hospital account at the time of admission.
Department of Veterans' Affairs
Department of Veterans' Affairs (DVA) patients will have their account directly sent to the DVA for payment. DVA patients are responsible for calls made to mobile, long distance (STD and international (ISD) numbers. Local calls are free.
Workers Compensation patients need to make arrangements to have their claim approved prior to admission.
After you leave hospital, you may receive bills for other charges incurred during your stay that are not the responsibility of the hospital. They are therefore charged separately, and may include fees relating to:
- Your treating doctor
- Allied health
