Health Care

Provides funding support for travel and accommodation for people who have to travel long distances (over 100 kilometres each way) to access specialist health services. If you require an escort to travel with you, they may also be eligible for reimbursement of some of their costs.

If you meet the eligibility requirements, assistance is available to travel on the most economical form of transport appropriate to your medical condition as recommended by your local doctor.
