Repatriation Private Patient Principles

Authoritative Version
2015 No. R33 Principles as made
This instrument sets out the order in which clients of the Department of Veterans' Affairs (DVA) may be admitted to hospital (ranging from Public Hospitals to Contracted Private Hospitals). On and after 1 July 2016 DVA clients will be entitled to private accommodation (if available) in a “contracted private hospital” i.e. a hospital that has entered into a contract with the Repatriation Commission. Before this date private accommodation for DVA clients in hospitals generally is not an automatic entitlement and various conditions apply.
