Benefits of Using Private Health Insurance

Benefits of Using Private Health Insurance
Benefits for the Patient-Regardless of financial status, all patients receive the same quality of treatment and range of services. However there are additional benefits for patients choosing to use their private health insurance. As a private patient, you are entitled to:
  • Personalised treatment by specialist doctors.
  • Waiving of any excess or co-payments for hospital accommodation, pathology & radiology (except for Obstetrics, Renal Dialysis, Radiotherapy, Hospital in the Home and Pain Management).
  • Incentives such as free television rental, daily newspaper and local telephone calls.
  • Request a single room (if you have appropriate health coverage). However, access cannot be guaranteed in all instances as priority is given to patients who require special medical treatment.

Benefits for Albury Wodonga Health- By using your private health insurance, additional revenue assists our hospital by:

  • Staying in the community
  • Improving patient services
  • Maintaining facilities
  • Contributing to the purchase of new equipment
