Patient Assisted Travel Scheme - PATS

The Patient Assisted Travel Scheme (PATS) provides financial subsidies for eligible WA country residents to reduce the cost of accessing the closest specialist medical services that are not available locally. 

Subsidies are not intended to cover all travel costs with recipients required to pay the difference between the subsidy amount and the actual cost of travel and accommodation.

PATS is a subsidy program funded by the Government of Western Australia administered through WA Country Health Service.
