Links to accommodation assistance & subsidies
If you are a country patient and eligible for VPTAS or interstate travel and accommodation subsidies, please let us know. Many of our accommodation partners will bulk-bill this on your behalf - contact our team for further information. The Victorian Patient Transport Assistance Scheme (VPTAS) subsidises the costs of travel and accommodation for Victorian patients that need to travel long distances for specialist medical care. Subsidies are provided to help cover the costs of staying in accommodation close to hospitals. Eligible patients and parents or carers are eligible to claim $49.50/night (incl GST) to $99/night (incl GST) to subsidise the cost of accommodation near the hospital. Subsidies are also available for travel costs including private car and public transport costs.
