CBHS’s hospital contracts: How CBHS selects and procures hospitals
Health insurance can be complicated, but our hospital contracts are designed to provide transparency and certainty for members.
CBHS has worked carefully to develop agreements with most private and day hospitals in Australia. We focus on private hospitals that are most likely to be used by our members. The general scope of CBHS' hospital contracts is to establish a fixed schedule of fees for common items, which include theatre, special unit accommodation and in-patient accommodation fees.
These fees are covered by CBHS for the member, and the level of coverage can vary depending on the member’s level of cover, type of cover, and other factors. If you choose a non-agreement hospital for receiving treatment, you might need to pay out-of-pocket expenses even if you have a very comprehensive level of cover.
