Hospital Cover Explained

In Australia, hospital cover is categorised as either Gold, Silver, Bronze or Basic. Hospital cover gives you more control if you need to go to hospital – like getting treated sooner by a doctor of your choice. We offer cover for singles, couples and families. If your situation changes down the track we can help you find cover that suits your new needs.

Hospital waiting periods vary according to the type of treatment or service. If you’re new to private health insurance, rejoining after a break in cover, upgrading to a higher level of cover, or changing your excess, you’ll have to wait before claiming on certain treatment and services.

When you take out hospital cover you’ll be asked to choose your excess. This is the amount you agree to pay if you’re admitted to hospital for planned treatment.

If you choose a higher excess, you’ll lower the cost of your cover. Choosing a lower, or zero excess, means you’ll pay less if you go to hospital, but the cost of your cover will be more.

Included means services and treatments are covered and you'll have less out-of-pocket expenses.
