Your private health care
Health insurance can be difficult to understand when preparing for your hospital visit.

There are many benefits to having private health insurance. Some of these benefits include being able to select your doctor. In many instances, private health cover often reduces the waiting period for elective surgery as the procedure can be carried out in a private hospital.

Whatever your reasons for taking out private health insurance, it's important to understand your level of cover so that you can ensure that it suits your needs and maximises value for money.

Below are some common terms that are used when discussing health insurance and your level of cover.

If you are ever in doubt about your level of cover for a procedure at our hospital, we strongly encourage you to check with your health fund and doctor's rooms in the first instance for more information.
