Medibank and Ramsay better now

Medibank and Ramsay Health Care have today finalised a three year agreement for the provision of hospital services to Medibank and ahm members.

The new three year contract covers the benefits paid by Medibank for hospital accommodation charges for Medibank and ahm members at all of Ramsay Health Care's hospitals.

Mr George Savvides, Managing Director Medibank and Mr Chris Rex, Managing Director Ramsay Health Care, said that the three year agreement provided certainty for members, patients and doctors.

"This agreement demonstrates that Australia's biggest health insurance fund and Australia's biggest private hospital provider are working together to keep quality private health care affordable," Mr Savvides said.

"We have enjoyed a long and productive relationship with Ramsay Health Care and this three year agreement cements that going forward," he said.

Mr Rex said that the three year agreement represented a positive outcome for both parties.

"Ramsay Health Care is committed to providing our patients with the quality health care that they have come to know and expect and this agreement ensures that this can continue for Medibank and ahm members."

The new contract between Medibank and Ramsay Health Care commences on 1 September 2013. Medibank and ahm members continue to be covered as normal when they attend a Ramsay Health Care hospital.
