If you have private health insurance, we will be able to arrange payment through your health fund. Alternatively, you can consider our other treatment payment options.
Option 1: Claim through your private health insurance (preferred)
Full private health cover is available for all mental health conditions, even pre-existing conditions, once you have been a member of a health fund for two months. Wesley Hospital has agreements with the majority of health insurance funds and the Department of Veterans Affairs.
Your private health insurance may also cover all costs of the admission, including psychiatric medications and doctors’ costs.
If you are unsure about your level of cover, contact our admissions coordinator with your private health fund membership number on 1300 924 522 and we can let you know over the phone.
Option 2: Self-fund your payment
If you would like to self-fund your treatment, call us on 1300 924 522 to discuss the payment plan options that are available to you.
Option 3: What if I don’t have private health insurance or if I can’t self-fund?
Note: Effective 1 April 2018, Australian Government changes to private health insurance coverage for mental health services.
If you do not currently have health insurance, you can take out a private health insurance plan today and you’ll be covered within two months of joining. To discuss this option further, call us on 1300 924 522.
Low-cost treatment programs
Wesley Hospital provides day patient programs for many conditions. Depending on your needs, this could be a more affordable alternative for you than our inpatient program.
Our day patient programs also provide a nurturing and secure environment in which to recover and help you return to living a fulfilled and connected life with your family and friends. The programs are delivered by our qualified team of psychologists and psychiatrists. Learn more about the types of treatment programs we offer or call us on 1300 924 522 and talk to our admissions coordinator about whether a day patient program is suitable for you and your needs.
