When you’re covered by HBF, you receive accommodation benefits which include the fees charged for your room in a private or public hospital. Depending on your level of cover, you may need to pay co-payments.
When you’re admitted to hospital, a lot of things happen that incur costs. 93.6% of hospital charges in WA are covered for HBF members. This means more cover for you if you go to hospital.
Other hospital benefits
In addition to accommodation benefits, HBF members receive theatre and labour ward, medical (fees charged by your surgeon, anaesthetist and pathology), pharmacy (some of the pharmaceuticals administered during your stay) and prostheses (fees charged for any prostheses used during your procedures) benefits.
