Three clever ways families can get more value from private health insurance


Here are three clever ways you can get more from your private health insurance for you and your family:

  • Gap free for kids  

Did you know that on Bupa family packages, you will pay nothing for your kids a Members First Provider for most dental, physio, chiro and podiatry consultations as well as selected optical packages, up to yearly limits^.

  • 13SICK National Home Doctor Service

We understand that illness can strike anytime. That’s why we teamed up with 13SICK, National Home Doctor Service. As a Bupa member, you have complimentary access to their After Hours Plus membership. This means that when you need urgent medical care after-hours and book a bulk-billed home visit, should you require commonly prescribed medications, they will be provided on the spot at no cost.

  • Bupa Medical Gap Scheme

A “gap” is a term which describes the amount you need to pay over and above what you get back from Medicare and your health insurer for in-patient medical costs. Bupa has arrangements with a large number of medical specialists/doctors such as surgeons, anaesthetists or other specialists to help minimise the amount you’ll need to pay for your medical costs in hospital, known as the Bupa Medical Gap Scheme*.
