How much will Emergency visit cost?
A $420 doctor fee will be charged for your attendance at our private Emergency Department for patients with a valid Medicare card. This includes WorkCover and TAC patients. Non-Medicare card holders will be charged $650.
Xray, CT and Ultrasound scanning for patients while in Emergency (that are not admitted), will be bulk billed and you will not incur out of pocket expenses for these services.
Outside of this consultation fee, any additional costs associated with pathology and specialist doctor consultations may be partially reimbursed by Medicare.
Unfortunately, not all private health insurers reimburse the emergency doctor's consultation fee, please check your level of cover with your insurer.
Accounts are to be settled on the day of treatment.

How long can I expect to wait?
Patients are seen in order of medical urgency with minimal delay to ensure the best medical outcome. Most patients will be seen within minutes, if not immediately upon arrival.
Appointments and referrals are not necessary. You can present yourself, come recommended by your GP or arrive via ambulance.
The Emergency Department has an easily accessible dedicated entrance located via the second entrance off Blanton Drive, with its own 5 minute parking for patient drop off and separate Ambulance bays.
Once patients are dropped off, there are ample parking facilities within the hospital grounds. Parking fees apply.

Following assessment by an emergency doctor, if you require treatment or surgery you may be admitted as an in-patient to Mulgrave Private Hospital or South Eastern Private Hospital (specialising in rehabilitation and mental health). If you are well enough to return home our treatment notes will be sent to your GP.
