Obtaining Medical Care in Australia

You are free to seek medical care from the Medical Practitioner of your choice. In Australia you can confidently go to any clinic. Primary care doctors (Physicians) are called GPs – General Practitioners – and are uniformly reliable. A GP will refer you to a Specialist Physician when necessary.

Mostly GPs, Specialist Physicians and Hospital Emergency Rooms will require you to pay for your visit. However, we will pay hospital bills directly on your behalf because often these bills are very large. Hospitals will always telephone IMAN to arrange payment. Never hesitate in seeking medical care.
