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:

  • Pre-admission joint school.
  • Hip or knee 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). 
  • And if required, rehabilitation or nursing care in the comfort of your own home delivered through Medibank at Home

Please note that excess and any co-payments under the policy are still payable.
