Where to start?

Finding out you need hospital treatment can be stressful. You may be worried about your short and/or long-term health. You may be concerned about money. You may also be confused by the healthcare system and what to do next.

The good news is that as a UniHealth member, we’ve got your back. We’re here to help you understand how your hospital cover can support you, so you can make informed decisions about your healthcare.

Using your hospital cover

If you have private hospital insurance, this guide will help you:

  • get the most from your UniHealth cover
  • understand and control your costs
  • be an active participant in your healthcare
  • know what to ask, and when
  • deal with the admin, then focus on your health.

Using the guide

If you’re new to all this, we recommend you read the guide from start to finish so you don’t miss anything important. Even if it isn’t your first time, it won’t hurt to get a refresh.

The info here is generic – it may not all be relevant to your condition, treatment or recovery; that kind of detailed advice needs to come from your healthcare team.

If there’s anything in the guide that you don’t understand, or want to know more about, please call us on 1300 367 906.
