A note on ambulance: Tasmania and Queensland have state schemes that cover ambulance services for residents of those states. Annual limits apply per person, per financial year.

For these excluded services the cost of treatment won’t be covered at all. This won’t stop you from going to a public hospital as a public patient for treatment.
