Do I need to have private health insurance

Although it not necessary to have insurance to be seen, surgery can be quite costly without it. We prefer patients who are uninsured and are likely to require surgery to be seen through Mr Callahan’s public clinic at the Royal Hobart Hospital. Patients will not be booked onto a public hospital waiting list without being seen in the clinic there and as such there is no advantage or “queue jumping” by being seen in the private rooms.

If you choose to self-fund surgery a quote will be provided for you
