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.
