If you have private health insurance
It is very important to contact your health fund before admission to check your level of cover, and to clarify any excess or co-payments you may have.
If you don’t have private health insurance
We welcome patients without insurance at South Perth Hospital, simply call us for an estimate of costs. You will need to pay all fees in full prior to your admission.
