Billing and insurance

Monash Health is part of Australia’s public health system and offers hospital care to any Australian resident under Medicare arrangements.

Are you a patient without a Medicare Card?

Patients without a Medicare card (or ineligible Medicare patients) need to pay for hospital services. It is your responsibility to ensure that you have adequate and appropriate health insurance cover or adequate money to cover the cost of your healthcare.

Australian Government has Reciprocal Health Care Agreements (RHCA) with:

  • United Kingdom
  • New Zealand
  • Ireland (Republic of)
  • Sweden
  • The Netherlands
  • Malta
  • Finland
  • Belgium
  • Norway
  • Slovenia
  • Italy

If you are visiting Australia from one of these countries, these agreements may entitle you to limited subsidised health services for medically necessary treatments while visiting Australia. Please note that visitors from Italy and Malta have six months Medicare coverage from the date of arrival in Australia.

Free medical care is also available to asylum seekers, refugees and people suffering from tuberculosis with appropriate supporting documentation.

Private patients

You have the right to choose to receive care as a public or private patient at our hospitals. Choosing to use your private health insurance within Monash Health helps generate much needed funds to:

  • Provide continuous improvement in patient care
  • Help support valuable research
  • Contribute to additional and improved hospital facilities

This is entirely up to you and you will receive the same treatment whether you are a public or private patient. Contact our Patient Liaison Officers for further information.
