Private Health Funds

Private health funds cover many areas, there are different levels and the costs vary. Private health insurance can help with the cost of private hospital admissions, the cost of seeing other health care professionals in private practice (eg. psychologists, dietitians, and physiotherapists) – each fund deals with this differently. Private health Funds do not cover costs of seeing your diabetes specialist (except for hospital). You don’t have to be in a private health fund to see a specialist privately.
