Using your private health insurance

Even though Latrobe Regional Hospital is a public health provider, you can choose to use your private health insurance when you are admitted.

If you have appropriate hospital cover and are not in the waiting period as prescribed by your insurer, you will have no out-of-pocket expenses for your stay and procedures (except for discharge medication).

Patients electing to use their private insurance will receive a daily newspaper or magazine and free television hire.

In return, Latrobe Regional Hospital receives payments from your health fund which is used to expand our facilities and range of services.

If you are interested in using your private health insurance, you can discuss this with your doctor or contact the Private Patient Liaison Officer at LRH on 5173 8496.

Your gift will keep on giving this festive season

We don't want you to travel to Melbourne for healthcare if you don't have to. That's why we're working hard to provide our specialists with great facilities and the latest equipment.

Our neurology service is seeking your help to purchase EEG equipment to measure electricial activity in the brain. It can be used to diagnose conditions such as seizures, tumours or head injuries. You may be surprised to learn there is no permanent EEG machine in Gippsland. Let's change that!

Click on the Make A Donation link or contact LRH Fundraising on 5173 8577. Have a safe and happy festive season!
