Patient Travel Assistance

Patients impacted by congenital/childhood heart disease, who are required to travel a significant distance for specialised medical treatment, may be able to claim for government financial support to help with transport and accommodation costs.

Eligibility criteria will vary according to your place of residence and the scheme operated by that State or Territory Government.  Please refer to the links below.

If you experience any difficulties or need assistance with completing the forms and understanding the process, our team is here to help and answer any questions you may have. Please call the HeartKids Helpline on 1800 432 785 or email: infoline@heartkids.org.au.
