Choose your own doctor or specialist during your public hospital stay
Limited cover for private hospital accommodation: If a member is admitted to a private hospital under Basic Plus Hospital cover members may only receive benefits similar to a public hospital shared room rate which can result in substantial out-of-pocket expenses.
Important note: Members with Basic Plus hospital should be aware that it is possible that you will be placed on a waiting list even if you are admitted as a private patient.
For treatment listed as an exclusion there is no benefit payable and member will incur significant out of pocket expense for these services. Please review the exclusions on this cover and always check with CBHS to see if you are covered before receiving treatment. The following services are excluded from this cover:
Note: Basic Plus Hospital cover is not sufficient for private hospital treatment as you may incur significant out-of-pocket expenses.
Waiting periods apply to those who are new to private health insurance or those who already have cover with CBHS or another fund, and choose to upgrade to a higher level of cover.
Parts of waiting periods served within one health fund can be completed in another when a person transfers funds. If you upgrade your level of cover waiting periods may apply to benefits not previously included within your original cover.
*If a member has a pre-existing condition, a waiting period of 12 months will apply before we will pay hospital or medical benefits towards any treatment for that condition.
**Note that upon serving the two month waiting period, members can choose to upgrade their cover (once in a lifetime) and access the higher benefits for hospital psychiatric treatment associated with that cover, without serving an additional waiting period. For more details contact us on 1300 654 123 or by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
*** Accident means an unexpected or unforeseen event caused by an external force or object resulting in an injury to the body which requires treatment by a medical practitioner, Hospital or dentist (as the context requires) but excludes pregnancy.
Excess options available: $0, $500 or $750
You can reduce the cost of Basic Plus Hospital cover by agreeing to pay an excess of $500 or $750. This means that when you go into hospital you will pay the first $500 or $750 in respect to charges raised by the hospital. This excess is per person up to a maximum of $1000 or $1500 per family membership per calendar year.
Our highest level of hospital cover for complete peace of mind
Active Hospital (Silver Plus) is a high-level product that covers more than the basics while excluding some services you don’t need.
Mid-level cover with exclusions on services you're less likely to need.
I joined as a CBHS member in 1978. Through many health events and challenges CBHS has always been there for me and my family. Their exceptional service over this time has always been appreciated.

I've not long joined CBHS from another fund, but so far I've been impressed by the super helpful and friendly staff, the higher claim limits and rebates at a very competitive premium, and how easy it is to lodge manual claims through the app. Thanks CBHS - you've won me over! 😃

I have been with CBHS since I began at CBA 15 years ago...Now I have three beautiful children, one who has a disability. Our top extras cover has been really essential for his early intervention. I do love the ease of claiming online.

I am relatively new to CBHS and am loving it already. I worked for a CBA subsidiary a long time ago but was still eligible to join. So much better that the for-profit funds - our premium is only a little more and we pay a lower co-contribution and get great benefits. I am loving the massage rebate for my partner and gym rebate for me!

I'm extremely happy with CBHS! I have been a customer for about six years. I think the price is reasonable. And i would refer you to my family and friends any day. Thank you CBHS!!!

Love CBHS as I never have to doubt that they've got my back when I need it. Been through other insurers who have limited options or limits, yet cost the same or more.
