NO PREMIUM INCREASE FOR 6 MONTHS
We've postponed our scheduled premium increase until at least 1 October 2020. We'll be in touch with all of our members about the delayed increase.
Our priority is our members who are struggling financially - especially those who find themselves, recently and suddenly, unemployed. It’s so important we make sure those who are doing it tough get the help they need.
If you have hospital only or hospital and extras cover with HCF and have become unemployed, through no fault of your own, we’ll pay your premiums for up to 6 months and you’ll still be covered during that time.
We're here to review the options that will be right for your needs and advise you where some conditions might apply. We've created a dedicated COVID-19 Member Care Team to talk you through your options. So if you're worried and struggling to pay your premiums please call us 13 13 34 so we can help.
WE’VE HAD TO CLOSE SOME OF OUR DOORS
To protect your health, and ours, we’ve made the tough call to close some of our doors. In our network:
- Call centres are open as normal, we’d appreciate your patience if you have to wait a little longer.
- HCF Dental Centres are only open for emergency appointments, please call your local Dental Centre so we can talk about your options.
- HCF Eyecare Centres aren’t taking new appointments, but you can still collect your glasses or contacts and order new contact lenses over the phone or by email.
- Our branches are closed across the country.
A GP AT YOUR FINGERTIPS
Our partnership with GP2U, a convenient online video GP service, makes it easier for you to access telehealth services.
As part of the changes introduced because of COVID-19 you can now have bulk-billed online GP consultations through our partner GP2U, call 1300 472 866, or you may be able to access bulk-billed online GP services with your current provider.
ONLINE MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES
During the COVID-19 crisis, you can access bulk-billed video consultations with a psychologist by getting in touch with your current provider or our partner PSYCH2U by calling 1300 472 866. We’re trying to make sure you have the support you need for your mental health plan and mental wellbeing.
We also offer extra mental health help with our chronic disease management programs and other online support programs*.
