Hospital fees and charges
COVID-19 testing and treatment
If you go to a public hospital or clinic for COVID-19 testing and treatment, you won't be charged.
If you have adequate health insurance, treatment costs will be billed directly to your insurer. You will not have any out-of-pocket expenses.
As well as admitted and non-admitted patient fees, this guide has information on fees for the following:
- medical transport
- medical reports, records and imaging.
These charges only apply to goods and services provided to some types of patients, such as:
- people who don't have access to Medicare, including people from overseas travelling in Australia
- people who are covered by insurance, including workers compensation.
