Whether you are staying for one night or an extended period, contact MediStays to assist with booking your hospital accommodation. We partner with trusted accommodation including hotels and apartments to support you when you need it most. The partners provide discounted rates and extra services including flexible booking conditions and discounted or complimentary car-parking.
To reduce the financial burden further, we link eligible patients and carers with financial support such as the NSW Government Isolated Patient Travel Accommodation Assistance Scheme (IPTAAS). The NSW IPTAAS is an important initiative that supports patients and their loved ones with the costs of travelling for medical care. Under this scheme, patients and approved companions can claim up to $120/night towards their accommodation and travel costs. Many of our accommodation partners will bulk-bill this on your behalf. Criteria for IPTAAS include being a resident of NSW or Lord Howe Island, travelling more than 100km (each way) from home to the hospital or 200km cumulative over one week and travelling to receive specialist medical care.
