Epworth is a private not-for-profit hospital with charitable status. As with all private emergency departments there are out-of-pocket costs associated with your treatment. 

We aim to keep fees for patients at a minimum, with some of the lowest fees for private hospital emergency treatment in Melbourne. These fees contribute to the efficient running of the department and ensure we can provide a premium service.  

Epworth Richmond Emergency De​partment fees

The emergency department charges a flat fee of $300 for each patient.  This out-of-pocket fee is not claimable under Medicare or private health insurance. ​ 

Depending on your treatment, you may also incur pathology or radiology costs which are on top of the out-of-pocket fee. If you hold a Medicare card a portion of these will be claimable under Medicare.  

International patients

International patients who do not hold a valid Medicare card will incur higher fees and will have to pay other associated fees up front. The initial consultation fee for international patients is $400.
