You're covered for these procedures with AAMI Gold Hospital

Excess: $500 or $750

Cancer treatment in hospital: It is important to be aware that health insurance will only cover the portion of costs that relate to an admission to hospital. Specialist fees outside of hospital or other outpatient fees in relation to chemotherapy or radiotherapy aren’t covered.

High cost drugs are sometimes requested for the Treatment of some cancers. Typically high-cost drugs are for newer Treatments that are not recognised by the Pharmaceutical Benefit Scheme (PBS) because the PBS considers them to be still under clinical trial and therefore experimental Treatments. Health insurance will not Cover high cost drugs for the same reasons (or may only Cover a small portion of the cost). It is the responsibility of the treating doctor, and Hospital, to inform Patients about the potential for large out-of-pockets as a result of high cost drugs.

Psychiatric Treatment waiting period waiver: Customers without full cover for Psychiatric Treatment are able to use a one-off waiver to upgrade their cover and have immediate access to applicable in-hospital mental health services. This waiver is only available to customers who have held hospital cover for at least the previous two months and have a valid referral from a consulting psychiatrist. To find out more, call us on 13 22 44.
