Your cover includes everyday hospital services such as joint reconstructions, gynaecology, ear, nose and throat services, and digestive system treatments.* It also includes medical services, such as seeing a GP, blood tests and x-rays plus unlimited emergency ambulance services, Australia-wide.*^

Why premiums are reviewed annually

Reviewing premiums each year allows us to keep up with rising healthcare costs. This means we can continue to provide you with affordable access to Australia’s high quality healthcare system during your time here.

 

My Medibank App

We’ve made it simpler for most members to stay on top of their cover with the My Medibank App. Check your limits, submit a claim for most extras, and find a Members’ Choice provider anywhere, anytime. And to avoid surprises, most members can use the out-of-pocket feature to estimate benefits and gaps for most extras claims.¹
