Gold Coast Private Emergency Care Centre. Close to home. Minimal wait times. Be cared for sooner, with or without private health insurance.
As with all private emergency departments there are out-of-pocket costs associated with your treatment. At Gold Coast Private the typical out-of-pocket emergency fee with a Medicare rebate is $250-300.
Depending on your treatment, you may also incur radiology, pathology and specialist doctor consultation fees, and a portion of these may be claimable under Medicare.
All fees are to be paid on the day.
Whether you have private health insurance, WorkCover or are uninsured, you can be assessed and treated at our emergency department. Veteran’s Affairs’ patients don’t pay out-of-pocket fees.
Emergency Department fees are not covered by private health insurance as per Private Health Insurance Act 2007. Private health insurance only covers patients once admitted to hospital.
International patients who don’t have a Medicare care card will pay a higher out-of-pocket presentation fee on the day. Any other out-of-pocket fees must be paid on the day.
We generally have shorter wait times than other emergency departments and you’ll be seen in order of medical urgency. You can check wait times online now.
Within minutes of your arrival, a nurse will assess you depending on the severity of your illness or injury. A doctor will also assess you and decide on the best treatment; either admitted into hospital or you’re treated and sent home with a GP follow up.
If you need treatment or surgery you may be admitted as an in-patient to Gold Coast Private Hospital.
