With HBF, even our most basic hospital products provide cover for thousands of medical procedures. When you go to hospital, you can have total peace of mind knowing HBF will help cover the cost for important treatments. These include chemotherapy, gallbladder procedures and knee or shoulder reconstructions, as well as more common procedures like endoscopies, hernia repair, tonsil removal, grommets and wisdom teeth removal.
We’ve designed our top levels of cover to include all in-patient medical procedures listed in the Medicare Benefit Schedule (MBS). As the level of cover decreases, high-cost procedures only relevant at a certain life stage like maternity and IVF, cataracts, joint replacement and heart treatment are excluded to help keep the cost of your premium down. That means no matter what stage you’re at in life, you can choose a product that suits your needs.
When medical practitioners charge more than the Medicare Benefits Schedule (MBS) fee, you may have to pay the difference in cost. This is called ‘the gap’.
To help avoid this, HBF makes agreements with doctors, specialists and anaesthetists so members are fully covered when they receive treatment by them.
HBF can inform members of practitioners who have an agreement with HBF, including whether the practitioner provides fully covered or known-gap treatment.
