Medibank is supporting a program to help eligible members pay no out-of-pocket medical costs for some joint replacements at participating hospitals.
Eligible members could pay no out-of-pocket on the following services as part of their hospital admission for elective surgery#:
- Pre-admission joint school.
- Joint replacement surgery with a participating surgeon, including your prosthesis (artificial joint).
- Anaesthetist costs.
- Assistant surgeon costs.
- Hospital accommodation, including all theatre costs.
- Diagnostic tests (scans and blood tests).
If clinically appropriate, receiving rehabilitation in the comfort of your own home could also be an option if a rehabilitation at home provider is available in your area.
Please note that excess and any per-day payments under the policy are still payable.

#Excludes joint replacements resulting from an emergency admission.
*Providers listed here are orthopaedic surgeons who are participating in the no gap joint replacement pilot program at participating hospitals. The surgeon and hospital will work with you to decide if the pilot is right for you and your health needs. However, if the surgeon refers you to a non-participating hospital and/or the pilot is not otherwise right for your health needs, any such procedure will not be part of the no gap joint replacement program and you may incur out-of-pocket costs.
The listing of a provider does not comprise any sort of representation or recommendation by Medibank regarding the provider. To the fullest extent allowed by law, such reference should not be construed as:
- an endorsement by Medibank; or
- commendation for the status of the provider’s registration with their registration bodies like the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA); or
- a recommendation or warranty by Medibank of, for or in relation to the provider’s services.
Accordingly, Medibank neither takes nor assumes any responsibility for the services provided. Members should rely on their own enquiries and seek any assurance or warranties directly from the provider in relation to the service or with the registration bodies (e.g. AHPRA) regarding any conditions or restrictions to the provider’s registration.
