Frequently Asked Questions

TEMP

What is the Travel Subsidy Scheme?

The Travel Subsidy Scheme provides financial assistance for patients who are referred to specialist medical services not available at their local public hospital or health facility.

Eligible patients are able to apply for a subsidy to assist with travel and accommodation costs of accessing specialist medical services.

Patients approved for PTSS will receive a subsidy to attend the closest public hospital or health facility where the specialist medical treatment is available. Patients travelling to access private specialist services may be eligible for a subsidy if the service is not available within 50 kilometres of the patient’s closest public hospital or health facility.

What is the Eligibility for Accessing Accommodation Through PTSS or IPTAAS?

As these State Travel Schemes are an external organisation to Carbal Medical Services, we encourage you to contact them directly to discuss eligibility.

Success Stories

"I know it is just an apartment, but Carbal Digs really helped me when I needed it most.

I'll forever be grateful for having such a nice place to stay while I saw the doctors at Toowoomba Base Hospital. It was a home away from home and one less thing to worry about during this time.

Thank you!"
