Health Insurance

Dr Gupta sees and treats both public and private patients. Public patients can be seen both in the private rooms or in the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital Outpatient Clinic.

What if I don’t have Private Health Insurance?

You can make an appointment to see Dr Gupta in the Private Rooms regardless of your Insurance status.

Dr Gupta operates on Private patients at:

  • Royal Prince Alfred Hospital
  • The Institute of Rheumatology and Orthopaedics (IRO) at RPA
  • North Shore Private Hospital
  • The Mater Hospital

Public patients will be treated at:

  • Royal Prince Alfred Hospital
  • The Institute of Rheumatology and Orthopaedics (IRO) at RPA

If you are not in a Private Health Fund, and require elective surgery, you have 2 alternatives:

  • Be admitted as a Public Patient
  • Be admitted as a Private Self Insured (PSI) Patient

As a public patient, you will be added to the Public Waitlist. As RPAH is an Accredited Teaching Hospital, your surgery may be performed by a Training Registrar, under the direct supervision of Dr Gupta.

You may choose to be admitted as a Private Self Insured (PSI) Patient through the public system at RPA, in which case Dr Gupta performs your surgery. Post- operative consultations are in Dr Gupta’s Private Rooms and are free of charge. There is a fee associated with PSI admission, consistent with the Australian Medical Association Schedule of Fees, however, you do receive a considerable portion back from Medicare.

Please call us on (02) 9519 1919 and we would be happy to provide you with further information regarding this option.
