Medical expenses while in hospital
If your doctor or specialists have agreed to charge you under the Access Gap Cover Scheme, they'll charge us directly for your hospital treatment.
If your doctor doesn't use Access Gap Cover, they may send you an account. You can take this to Medicare and then to TUH for payment. Just use our claim form and make sure you include the “Statement of Benefits” from Medicare with your claim. Medicare will pay 75% of the Medicare Benefits Schedule (MBS) Fee and TUH will pay the remaining 25% of the MBS Fee. You will need to pay any amount the doctor charges above the MBS Fee.
