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.

Extra Cover Explained

Extras cover helps reduce out-of-pocket expenses that come with managing or improving your health. Depending on which extras cover you choose, you can claim on a range of services like dental, optical, physio, weight management programs and more.  Waiting periods apply and vary according to the type of service.

If you have extras cover, we’ll pay up to a set amount for extras services (like dental or optical), depending on your annual limits. The amount we’ll pay also varies depending on your level of cover. You’ll need to pay the difference between what your extras provider charges and the benefits we pay: this is an extras gap.

Getting the most out of your extras cover means more money saved, and a boost to your family’s health and wellbeing. Preventive health checks are important at any age and our wide network of extras providers makes accessing care easy. Depending on your level of cover and which service you choose, you could get 100% back** through our no-gap providers.

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