Referrals & Costs
Referrals & Costs for Mental Health Programs:
Patients may self-refer, or be referred by a psychologist, psychiatrist, physician or general medical practitioner. The Program Director will provide advice on the appropriateness of admission by telephone on request.
Clients will be admitted as a patient and as such, can claim it via their health fund. All health funds have different rules. Please check with The Southport Private Hospital staff, who will advise if any out-of-pocket excess or gap costs are applicable.
