Total amount of travel and accommodation the TAC can pay
For family members visiting a TAC client in hospital we can pay the costs of a hotel or motel, air fares, petrol, public transport, a hire car or taxis up to a maximum amount of $20,820. This amount applies when a claim for visiting expenses is made for the first time after 1 July 2020.
If a claim for visiting expenses was made before 1 July 2020, the maximum amount will be different. If visiting expenses were first claimed:
- Between 1 July 2019 and 30 June 2020, the total maximum is $20,410
- Between 26 September 2018 and 30 June 2019, the total maximum is $20,000
- Between 1 July 2018 and 25 September 2018, the total maximum is $11,020
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you need the maximum amount for an earlier date.
These maximum amounts do not apply to parents visiting a dependent child in hospital.
