What do Gold, Silver and Basic mean?
The terms in brackets tell you which Hospital insurance tier the cover sits in. The tiers were introduced by the government to make it easier to compare cover. If we’ve added a ‘Plus’, the cover includes more than the minimum services that have to be in that tier – sometimes a lot more, so don’t be put off by the fact there are a few Basic Plus options.
So, what's right for you?
We offer different levels of hospital insurance, from Basic Hospital (Basic Plus) to Top Hospital (Gold) with the lot. To get the best value, choose cover that reflects your life stage and health. That includes things you will (or might) need, without paying for services you probably won’t.
It's essential to understand what your hospital cover does and doesn’t include, so be sure to have a close read of our product descriptions. You don’t want to be disappointed down the track and we don’t want you to either.
