When you come to the RMH, you can choose to be treated as a private or public patient. 

Public patients are not required to pay for their stay in hospital and are treated by a team of doctors nominated by the hospital. 

Private patients can be treated by a doctor of their choice, provided that doctor has a right to practice at this hospital. Private patients will be billed according to their health insurance.

WorkCover, TAC and Veterans’ Affairs patients will have their hospital expenses covered by these third party providers.
