Will the change to my cover affect my premium?
By making Hospital Psychiatric Services restricted on Mid Classic (Silver Plus), we’re preserving the competitiveness of the price for our members.
If we hadn’t made this change, costs would continue to rise, resulting in a significant premium increase for members. Instead, we’re not increasing the base premium for Mid Classic (Silver Plus) in 2020.
When do the changes come into effect?
1 April 2020. If anyone on your membership is currently in treatment (Hospital Psychiatric Services in a private hospital), we'll cover them until 1 June 2020.
How do I upgrade to Top Hospital (Gold)?
