Alcohol and drug treatment insurance changes
We are waiving our excess fees until 1 October 2020
Call us on 1300 924 522 to speak with Wesley Hospitals to discuss how we can help and support you. Once you have your private health cover, we can admit you for your treatment within one day and no excess fee required. Our helpful staff will make this process seamless for you. If you do not have private health insurance, please have a look at other payment options below.
How to pay for your treatment
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.
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 medication and doctors fees.
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.
