You MUST have an approved claim and evidence of approval to be admitted as a Compensable patient. Workcover or the Road Traffic Authority of South Australia, together with your insurance company and the hospital, must all be in agreement as to what portion of the cost of hospitalization will be covered before you may be admitted as a private patient to the private hospital. Proof of this agreement MUST be provided before the admission can be processed.
You CANNOT use Private Health Insurance if you are admitted as a result of an accident.
This does not apply for emergency medical conditions.
