Get more back with Members’ Choice
Get 100% back on an annual dental check up with a Members’ Choice dentist1. We've also negotiated maximum agreed prices at Members' Choice providers so you can be clear about what your out of pocket may be for a wide range of Extras services. It helps to have access to a large network of health service providers across the country – find one closest to you.
Peace of mind with Hospital cover
As part of our Hospital cover, we've worked closely with GPs to develop CareComplete, a range of integrated health support services to help eligible members better manage their chronic conditions. CareComplete is currently available in most major metropolitan and regional centres2.
Better support before and after hospital
Our Health Concierge3 program gives extra support to eligible members when they need it most. If you’re preparing for, or recovering from a hospital stay, we'll aim to help make it as comfortable and stress-free as possible. You can also get a head start with these helpful tips.
Everyone benefits from a quick health check now and then. And the same goes for your health insurance.
Simply complete our quick questionnaire to find out whether your cover is still right for you, and request a callback to chat about your options.

Better quality healthcare
In Australia, we enjoy some of the best healthcare in the world. New and improving technologies mean better treatment, but they can come at a price. These technologies are often expensive to implement, and contribute to higher overall costs in the health sector.
A rise in chronic conditions
While we’re living longer, Australians are also being admitted to hospital in record numbers. Chronic conditions such as heart disease and diabetes are increasing year by year.
Our ageing population
As they say, 50 is the new 30, 60 is the new 40, and so on. It’s great news that Australians, on the whole, are living longer. But the longer we live, the more healthcare we’re likely to need.
Decreasing government rebates
The Australian Government Rebate for health insurance has been steadily decreasing each year, which means your premiums may be higher.
