Under Emergency Services Health Access Gap Cover you may never have to pay a doctor’s bill. Your doctor can forward all accounts to us and we pay them on your behalf.
The Australian Health Service Alliance has recently written to Australian medical practitioners advising them about the launch of Emergency Services Health and our participation in Access Gap Cover. If the medical practice is not yet aware of us, or has not received their notification, ask them to contact our office on 1300 703 703, we are here to help.
Before you’re admitted to hospital check with your doctor if they are one of 25,000 doctors Australia wide who has an arrangement with us under the Access Gap Cover scheme.
When doctors bill under this arrangement we can pay higher benefits to eliminate or at least reduce your out of pocket costs.
While all doctors can be involved in Access Gap Cover, it is up to individual doctors to participate on a case by case basis.
Please speak with your doctor or specialist to see if they will participate in Access Gap Cover for any planned private hospital treatment. For a list of providers eligible to participate and who have agreed for their details to be published, please call us or use our online provider search.
