John Flynn Private Hospital offers no up-front charges* at the Emergency Department prior to seeing a doctor or having any tests. Payment is now required at the time of discharge. (*Previously, a pre-authorisation of $310 was taken on a credit card prior to seeing a doctor – this is no longer required.)
There will be no out of pocket charges raised by South Coast Radiology to patients in the John Flynn Emergency Department. See flyer for more information.
Payments can be made by cash, EFTPOS, Mastercard and Visa. (Note: excludes patients covered by the Department of Veterans’ Affairs Gold Card.)
