Medibank’s GapCover scheme is a flexible arrangement that eligible medical practitioners can participate in to help Medibank members reduce or avoid out out-of pocket expenses for in-hospital medical services. Under our GapCover arrangements, eligible medical practitioners can set their fees above the Medicare Benefits Schedule (MBS), so long as the requirements of the scheme are met.

Rejection code management tool
Practice Managers have reported that one of their most pressing pain points is claims management, in particular the claims rejection process.
Medibank has prepared, in close consultation with Australian Association of Practice Management (AAPM) Members, a Rejection Code Management Tool as a helpful resource to address these issues. The tool lists the most common rejection codes and provides you with strategies to resolve the rejections.
