Frequently Asked Questions

What are the benefits of health insurance?

If you have private health insurance and choose to be treated as a private patient, you have choice over which doctors treat you and in which hospitals you’re treated. Depending on your hospital cover, it pays benefits towards some of the costs of in-hospital treatment as a private patient, and generally means reduced waiting times for elective surgery. If you have extras cover, it pays benefits towards health services usually not covered by Medicare.
