Top Hospital Bonus

Our Top Hospital Bonus contributes to your out-of-pocket costs if you’re admitted for treatment.

Each year you can claim up to $100 for singles, and up to $200 for couples and families for non-medical expenses.

You can use the bonus for non-medical charges relating to a hospital admission. This includes the following things:

Hospital accommodation out-of-pockets – Out-of-pocket charges relating to your accommodation when you are admitted to a non-Members’ Choice hospital (public or private).

CPAP – Out-of-pocket costs associated with CPAP type appliances such as BiPAP,  VPAP and APAP.

Boarder accommodation fees – Payment towards additional charges raised by the hospital for your next of kin to stay in hospital with you.

Wheelchairs and crutches – Payment towards out-of-pocket costs for crutches and wheelchairs which are provided upon your discharge from hospital to help aid your recovery.

The Top Hospital Bonus will not pay for out-of-pocket costs for any medical claims (such as those raised by your doctor or a diagnostic provider), hospital excess or services that are not considered clinically necessary, eg. car parking fees or pay TV.

1. Complete a claim form, available from Medibank.com.au or any Medibank store.

2. On the claim form, under ‘Claim Type’ please ensure you tick the Top Hospital Bonus box (not the membership bonus box)
