Fees & Charges

Patients with private health insurance are
usually covered for procedures or surgery at Maryvale Private. Your health fund
will be billed directly for these and hospital accommodation fees. However, you
may have to pay an excess or co-payment, which is payable on admission to the
hospital, and additional out-of-pocket costs for services provided. We will
confirm any changes prior to admission.

If you have private hospital insurance, contact
your health fund to check that your policy covers you for your treatment. Your
fund will advise if an excess applies and any out-of-pocket expenses.


If you do not hold private health insurance,
you may wish to self-fund your admission. Please submit an enquiry to enquiry@maryvaleph.com.au
for a quote if you wish to be admitted as a self-funded patient.

Private health insurance

Depending on your level of cover with your
health fund, an out-of-pocket balance may be payable for your admission. Our friendly
admissions team will contact you, via email, prior to your planned admission to
advise of any out-of-pocket expenses. All estimated out-of-pocket expenses are
payable prior to, or on admission.

Questions you may wish to ask your insurer:


  • Does
    my policy cover me for this procedure or service?
  • Under
    my policy, do I have to pay an excess or a co-payment or any other
    charges? If so, how much?
  • Will I
    have to pay extra for my hospital accommodation, my doctors’ fees and
    those of anyone else involved with my, treatment, or is it all covered
    under my policy?
  • If I
    have to pay extra, when and to whom do I pay it?

Self funded patients

Self funded patients are required to pay the estimated hospital account seven days prior to admission. To obtain a self funded estimate, please contact our Admissions Team at enquiry@maryvaleph.com.au. You will need the following information:


  • Patient’s name

Workers’ Compensation (WorkSafe)/Transport Accident Commission (TAC)

Workers’ Compensation and TAC patients need to ensure their admission has been approved by the appropriate insurance company prior to admission, and a copy of your approval has been provided to the hospital.
