Overseas Patients

Together Creating a Happier Healthier Northern Mallee

Patients who are not covered by Medicare may have to cover any costs associated with their visit. Overseas patients should check if they have Reciprocal Health Care Agreements with Australia or are covered under other government arrangements.


If you have insurance with an Australian Health Fund, we are able to process your account through them with no payment required up front. If you have an overseas health fund, payment of the account will be required and you will need to claim back your fees.

For those patients not covered by Medicare or a Reciprocal Health Care Agreement, fees for appointments and admissions will apply. For further information about specific costs, please speak to your treating team upon presentation

Asylum Seekers

If you are an asylum seeker or refugee you are entitled to free essential medical care. You will need to provide supporting documentation confirming your status from the Department of Immigration or recognised asylum support agency such as Red Cross. If you cannot provide this documentation, you will be billed; however fees will be waived if the documents are produced to us at a later date.
