Using your cover

With Medibank, Rio Tinto gives you health cover that delivers great value to you and your family. Here’s how you can make the most of being a Medibank member.

How to find a provider

If you choose one of the Rio Tinto Better Health Cover extras product, you’ll get a percentage back on included extras at all recognised providers.^ 

You could generally get better value by choosing a provider from Medibank’s extensive Members’ Choice Network#. We have negotiated on your behalf with the providers in our network, so you won’t be charged more than the agreed price.

How to make a claim

Claiming with Medibank is easy. If your health provider doesn’t process the claim on the spot, then you’ve got a range of options to choose from. Most extras can be claimed online or via our handy mobile app. For other services you’ll need to download a claim form and post it back to us with any accounts and receipts. How you get paid is up to you – either directly into your account or via a cheque in the mail.

Health Concierge

With hospital cover, Health Concierge provides personalised, preventative health assistance to help eligible members prepare for, or recover from, a hospital stay or treatment. Our Health Concierges are highly-skilled in providing exceptional support to people going through potentially stressful times. Depending on the procedure you are undergoing, our service starts with a call from a Concierge, who’ll assess your circumstances and offer support that best suits your needs. Depending on the situation, the Concierge may follow up down the track to ensure you remain supported in your health journey.
