Better value, transparency of cost, and a wider range of available services. Just some of the benefits of choosing Members’ Choice, one of the largest health provider networks in Australia.
Members’ Choice Hospitals
Medibank has arrangements with most private hospitals and day surgeries in Australia, so members can generally get better value for covered treatments than if they were to go to a non-Members’ Choice hospital.
Members’ Choice providers
We’ve negotiated with a number of providers so you may enjoy better value when you need an extras service. Our Members' Choice extras network covers more types of services than any other private health insurer, and includes:
- Dental prosthetists
- Optical retail outlets
- Remedial massage therapists
Benefits of visiting a Members' Choice provider:
- Capped prices so there are no surprises in your bill^
- Discounts at optical retailers and for orthotics
- percentage back of charge. This could be 55%, 70%, 85% or 100% depending on your cover*
- A wider range of extras services than other insurers
- Generally lower out-of-pockets than non-Members' Choice providers
- Free dental check-up and clean every year at any Members’ Choice dentist, over and above your annual dental limit (excludes X-Rays and a two month waiting period applies).
