Q: Am I eligible for Queensland’s Patient Travel Subsidy Scheme (PTSS)?

Please check with Patient Travel Subsidy Scheme (PTSS) or with your local hospital’s Patient Travel Office.

Q: How does QLD’s Patient Travel Subsidy Scheme (PTSS) or NT’s Patient Assistance Travel Scheme (PATS) or NSW’s Isolated Patient Transport and Accommodation Assistance Scheme (PTAAS) work?

In recognition of Australia’s vast distances and to maintain world-leading health services to Australian citizens, the various State and Territory governments of Australia subsidise travel and accommodation expenses for patients and their carers. Subsidising travel and accommodation is cheaper to the Government than building new medical facilities and hospitals, training staff and retaining specialists in regional areas.
