Benefits of Using Private Health Insurance

Benefits for the Patient 

Regardless of financial status, all patients receive the same quality of treatment and range of services. However there are additional benefits for patients choosing to use their private health insurance. As a private patient, you are entitled to:

  • Personalised treatment by specialist doctors.

  • Waiving of any excess or co-payments for hospital accommodation, pathology & radiology (except for Obstetrics, Renal Dialysis, Radiotherapy, Hospital in the Home and Pain Management).
  • Incentives such as free television rental, daily newspaper and local telephone calls.
  • Request a single room (if you have appropriate health coverage). However, access cannot be guaranteed in all instances as priority is given to patients who require special medical treatment.
