What is included in a GMHBA health insurance policy?

  • Hospital cover: helps you pay for treatment as a private patient in either a public hospital or private hospital. The type of treatment you are covered for will vary depending on the level of cover you choose.
  • Extras Cover: covers some of the cost for out-of-hospital care and services not covered by Medicare. Depending on your level of cover, extras cover helps you take care of the things that are important to your lifestyle including dental, optical, physio and chiro.

CCS organises care for eligible members with complicated health problems5. It doesn’t matter what level of hospital cover you hold, GMHBA’s care coordination service can provide you with support, information and access to health services, at no extra cost.
