Hospital Cover

What is Hospital cover?

Hospital cover helps cover the costs of in-hospital medical treatment by a doctor. It also covers other hospital expenses like accommodation, prostheses and theatre fees. With hospital cover, you can choose your doctor, stay in a private room (if it’s available) and book in treatment at a time that suits you.

Gold Silver Bronze Levels 4

How does Gold, Silver, Bronze and Basic work?

Hospital insurance can be broken down into four tiers: Gold, Silver, Bronze and Basic. Each tier has a minimum list of Government mandated categories of hospital treatments and services that they must include for example, for a policy to be called “Gold”, it must cover all 38 categories of treatments and services.

Health funds can also choose to go above and beyond the list by including more categories in their products than the bare minimum. If so, there is the option to add a “plus” after the name of the cover, i.e. “Bronze Plus Hospital”, to show that the product includes more than the minimum.
