If you’re unwell after hours you can book a bulk billed home visit from National Home Doctor Service, and as a Bupa health insurance member you will be treated as an After Hours Plus patient.
This means you can be supplied medications from a list of commonly required antibiotics and other medications on the spot, at no cost so treatment can begin immediately. As a Bupa health insurance member, you’ll get complimentary access to After Hours Plus.
The National Home Doctor Service will make an appointment for you or your family member to see your GP the following business day if required. If a patient’s regular GP is away they will organise an appointment with an alternative GP from the same practice.
# The additional household benefit is not available to Bupa health insurance members as part of the complimentary access offering, although anyone covered under a Bupa membership has access to After Hours Plus if they’re not living at ‘home’.
There is no need to register your details to be privy to this service. Bupa health insurance members are automatically entitled to After Hours Plus as a complimentary service and does not require you to action anything. Just have your Bupa membership number handy when you ring to use the National Home Doctor Service.
