The Patient Travel Subsidy Scheme (PTSS) for Accommodation

Suppose you require specialist medical services or treatments in Brisbane, and you are unable to obtain these at a local public hospital or public health facility within 50km of your home. In that case you may be eligible for financial assistance from the Queensland government. Travel and accommodation expenses may be covered or partially covered under the Patient Travel Subsidy Scheme (PTSS). This could be an option for Queensland residents eligible for Medicare, providing that you meet the following criteria.

To apply you will need show that you will have to travel away from your residence soon for a specialist medical treatment or service, as indicated by a GP or clinician having completed a travel referral form for you to submit. If you need to stay at an accommodation provider for one or more nights you may be able to claim up to $60 per night per person, depending on your individual circumstances.

Alternatively, you may also be able to claim escort subsidies through the PTSS. Parents or guardians travelling with or caring for a patient that is a minor is one such example. Escort subsidies may also apply if the patient requires home care after a treatment or procedure, or requires assistance with activities of daily living, among other criteria options.

In addition, if you are required to travel for medical treatment on short notice and were unable to submit the necessary documents in time for your appointment or admission, you may be able to claim retrospectively. If you choose to book a stay at Annexe Apartments for medical treatment, call us to ask about our special hospital stay rates. You can then make a claim within 12 months of your stay, providing proof of accommodation expenses as part of your retrospective application.

Please note that eligibility criteria is subject to change, so please ensure that you check the most recent Queensland Government guidelines for this scheme before booking your stay. Read more
