Important Information

Cancer treatment in hospital - it is important to be aware that health insurance will only cover the portion of costs that relate to an admission to hospital. Specialist fees outside of hospital or other outpatient fees in relation to chemotherapy or radiotherapy aren't covered. High cost drugs are sometimes requested for the Treatment of some cancers. Typically high-cost drugs are for newer Treatments that are not recognised by the Pharmaceutical Benefit Scheme (PBS) because the PBS considers them to be still under clinical trial and therefore experimental Treatments. Health insurance will not cover high cost drugs for the same reasons (or may only cover a small portion of the cost). It is the responsibility of the treating doctor, and Hospital, to inform Patients about the potential for large out-of-pockets as a result of high cost drugs.

Minimum Benefits Payable (MBP) means that we will pay the minimum amount of benefits that we are required to pay under the Private Health Insurance Act, to or on behalf of a customer for hospital treatment under a Hospital cover. If you're attending a Private Hospital for these services, there will be significant out-of-pocket costs.

INCL - Hospital Treatment provided by a registered Podiatric Surgeon is limited to cover for accommodation and prosthetic devices. No benefits are payable for Podiatric Surgeon fees, medical specialist fees (e.g. Anaesthetist) or theatre costs. Refer to the Policy Booklet for more information.

Most Extras healthcare providers offer on-the-spot claiming. Simply swipe your ING Health Insurance card and pay any difference between the provider's fee and the benefit we pay.

If you forget your card, no worries. Keep a copy of the official provider receipt and upload a scanned copy or photo of it to member services.

For all the details on cover and claims, check your Policy Booklet.

We've partnered with nib to provide members with access to a number of arrangements to help minimise out-of-pocket-expense when you need to go to hospital.

How to help reduce your out of pocket expenses with your Hospital cover:

Use a specialist from the MediGap scheme who won't charge a gap fee.

Take advantage of the no gap agreements for certain procedures including knee and hip replacements.

Choose an Agreement Hospital to keep costs down.

How to make the most of your Extras cover:

You can visit any healthcare professional you choose as long as their qualifications are recognised by our partner nib.

Use the network of First Choice dentists, optometrists and physiotherapists who have agreed they will deliver quality care and value for money.
