minimum benefits Minimum Benefits Minimum Benefits

Minimum Benefits

For services paid at minimum benefits in a private hospital we will pay minimum shared room benefits, and you will have your choice of doctor. These benefits would not be adequate to cover all hospital costs and are likely to result in large out-of-pocket expenses.

For services paid at minimum benefits in a public hospital, we will pay minimum shared room benefits and you will have your choice of doctor. If these benefits are less than the public hospital charges, you will have out-of-pocket expenses to pay.

Understanding your hospital cover

What is covered?

Hospital costs


With private hospital cover, you can choose to be treated as a private patient in either a public or a private hospital.

What if I am treated in a Members First or Network Hospital?

You will be fully covered, in most instances, as a private patient in most hospitals that Bupa has an agreement with, known as Members First and Network hospitals across Australia for any treatment which is recognised by Medicare and is not either restricted or excluded under your cover.

A small number of these hospitals may charge a fixed daily fee. This fee is capped at a maximum number of days for overnight stays. The hospital should inform you of this fee when you make a booking. This fee is in addition to any excess or co-payment you may have as part of your hospital cover.

At Members First Day Hospitals, you have the added benefit of no medical gaps in addition to being covered for hospital costs, provided the treatment is recognised by Medicare and there are no exclusions on your level of cover.#

# Not available in NT. Any co-payment or excess related to your level of cover will still apply.

When admitted to hospital, in most cases you will be covered for all in-hospital charges when provided as part of your in-hospital treatment including:

  • accommodation for overnight or same-day stays
  • operating theatre, intensive care and labour ward fees
  • supplied pharmaceuticals approved by the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme
  • physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy and other allied health services
  • surgically implanted prostheses up to the approved benefits in the Government's Prostheses List
  • private room where available.

We recommend you call us first before making a booking to confirm that your chosen hospital gives certainty of full cover. We can also discuss any excess or co-payment that might apply to your level of cover. You can find out if a hospital has an agreement with us by checking the Find a Healthcare Provider section of this website.

Can I choose to be treated as a private patient in a public hospital or at a private hospital that Bupa does not have an agreement with?

If you elect to be treated as a private patient in a public hospital or are admitted to a private hospital that Bupa does not have an agreement with, you are covered as set out below for any treatment recognised by Medicare unless it is excluded or restricted under your cover.

In these circumstances, you are likely to incur out-of-pocket expenses for your hospital costs.

What happens if I choose a private hospital that Bupa doesn’t have an agreement with?

If you are admitted to a private hospital that Bupa does not have an agreement with, we will pay shared room minimum benefits and benefits for prostheses up to the benefit in the Government Prostheses List. This will apply for any treatment recognised by Medicare, unless it is excluded or restricted under your cover. These benefits will only partially cover the full cost and you will have significant out-of-pocket expenses.

It is important to note that you will be responsible for the cost of your stay and may be charged directly for your hospital accommodation, doctor’s services (including any diagnostic tests), surgically implanted prostheses (such as artificial hips) and personal expenses such as TV hire and telephone calls. Some of these hospitals bill Bupa directly for the limited benefits we pay. Please also refer to the Medical Costs section below.

What happens if I choose to be a private patient in a public hospital?

As a private patient in a public hospital you are entitled to choose your doctor, if they are available. However, it is important to understand that you may still be subject to public hospital waiting lists.

Depending on your illness or condition, this may be the same doctor who would have been allocated to you by the hospital as a public patient. Additionally, whether a doctor provides treatment at a public hospital, or performs a particular procedure in a public hospital, is outside of Bupa’s control.

If you elect to be treated as a private patient in a public hospital, we will pay minimum benefits for shared room accommodation as set by the Australian Government. Depending on your level of cover, if you choose to stay in a private room, Bupa may pay an additional fixed benefit towards the cost of your stay. If this benefit is less than the hospital charge, the hospital should let you know what out-of-pocket expenses you will have to pay. Bupa also pays benefits for prostheses up to the benefit in the Government Prostheses List.

The above applies for any treatment recognised by Medicare unless it is excluded or restricted under your cover. It is important to note that in public hospitals, private rooms are generally allocated to people who medically need them.

As a private patient in a public hospital you will also be responsible for personal expenses such as TV hire and telephone calls together with any Medical Gaps your doctor/surgeon charges above the Medicare Benefit Scheme and prostheses charges above the benefit in the Government Prostheses List.

Medical costs


These are the fees charged by a doctor, surgeon, anaesthetist or other specialist for any treatment given when you are in hospital. You are covered for the cost of these medical treatments up to the Medicare Benefit Schedule (MBS) fee. The MBS fee is the amount set by the Federal Government for each medical service covered by Medicare. You must be eligible for Medicare in order to be covered up to the MBS fee.

How benefit is calculated

If you choose to be treated as a private patient in a hospital (public or private), Medicare will cover you for 75% of the MBS fee for associated medical costs and we will cover the remaining 25%.

Bupa Medical Gap Scheme

The Bupa Medical Gap Scheme is an arrangement Bupa has with some medical specialists/doctors such as an anaesthetist to help minimise the amount you’ll need to pay for your medical costs in hospital.

No Gap

If you see a “No Gap” doctor that uses the Bupa Medical Gap Scheme you won’t have to pay any medical costs as your medical specialist or doctor will bill Bupa directly. Check with them that they will use this for your upcoming admission upfront.

Known Gap

If you see a ‘Known Gap’ doctor that uses the Bupa Medical Gap Scheme with you, you will need to pay up to $500 towards your medical costs.

Without the Gap Scheme

If your doctor is not using the gap scheme, Medicare will pay 75% and Bupa will pay 25% of the MBS fee. Any charge above that will be your gap.

Your choice of network

We are partnered with Genesis Heart Care, a network of cardiologists across VIC, QLD, SA and WA that focus on providing quality, evidence based cardiology services. When you see a cardiologist from Genesis Heart Care you will have certainty of no out-of-pocket expenses for your in-hospital cardiologist treatment. You’ll also be provided with information and advice so you can make informed decisions about your treatment and lifestyle.

What is not covered?

Hospital costs


Situations when you will not be covered include:

  • when you have not been admitted into a hospital and are treated as an outpatient (eg emergency room treatment, outpatient ante-natal consultations with an obstetrician)
  • during a waiting period
  • when a service is excluded from your cover
  • when a service is covered as a minimum benefit and you are admitted to a private hospital, you will not be covered above the minimum benefit
  • for the fixed fee charged by a fixed fee hospital or a hospital that has a fixed fee service
  • for psychiatric and rehabilitation day programs, at a hospital Bupa does not have an agreement with
  • hospital treatment provided by a practitioner not authorised by a hospital to provide that treatment
  • hospital treatment for which Medicare pays no benefit, including: medical costs related to surgical podiatry (including the fees charged by the podiatric surgeon); cosmetic surgery where not clinically necessary; respite care; experimental treatment and/or any treatment/procedure not approved by the Medical Services Advisory Committee (MSAC)
  • personal expenses such as: pay TV, internet access, non-local phone calls, newspapers, boarder fees, meals ordered for your visitors, hairdressing and any other personal expenses charged to you unless included in your cover
  • if you are in hospital for more than 35 days and you have been classified as a ‘nursing home type’ patient. (In this situation you may receive limited benefits and be required to make a personal contribution towards the cost of your care) if you choose to use your own allied health provider rather than the hospital’s practitioner for services that form part of your in-hospital treatment (eg chiropractors, dieticians or psychologists)
  • where compensation, damages or benefits may be claimed by another source (eg workers compensation)
  • for any amount charged by a public or non-agreement hospital which is not covered by us or which is above the benefit that we pay
  • for any treatment or service provided outside Australia
  • for some non-PBS, high cost drugs
  • for pharmacy items not opened at the point of leaving the hospital.

Medical costs


You will not be covered for:

  • medical services for surgical procedures performed by a dentist, surgical podiatrist, or any other practitioner or service that is not eligible for a rebate through Medicare.

Waiting periods


A waiting period is the time between the start date of your membership and when you are covered for a service or treatment. If you receive a service or treatment during a waiting period, you are not eligible to receive a benefit payment from us, regardless of when you submit the claim. Different waiting periods apply for different services.

The following waiting periods apply for hospital cover:

  • palliative care, psychiatric and rehabilitation services – two months
  • pre-existing conditions, ailments or illnesses and pregnancy (including childbirth) – 12 months
  • all other treatments included in your cover – two months.

Inpatient vs outpatient

If you are admitted as a private inpatient, you will be covered for the services listed in your chosen level of hospital cover. If you receive treatment as an outpatient (ie you are not admitted), in most instances you will not be covered by private health insurance. If eligible these services may be claimed from Medicare.

When to contact us

If you have been a Bupa member for less than 12 months on your current hospital cover, it is important to contact us before you are admitted to hospital to find out whether the pre-existing condition waiting period applies to you. We need about five working days to make the pre-existing condition assessment, subject to the timely receipt of information from your treating medical practitioner/s. Make sure you allow for this timeframe when you agree to a hospital admission date. If you proceed with the admission without confirming benefit entitlements and we (the health fund) subsequently determine your condition to be pre-existing, you will be required to pay all hospital charges and medical charges not covered by Medicare.

Planning for a baby

If you are thinking about starting a family we recommend that you contact us to check whether your current level of cover includes pregnancy in advance. This is because a 12-month waiting period applies to pregnancy (including childbirth) and assisted reproductive services.

No waiting periods will apply to the newborn provided they have been added to the appropriate family hospital cover within two months of their birth.

Additional features

You may not have to pay the Medicare Levy Surcharge

Covers you against paying an additional levy known as the Medicare Levy Surcharge. This levy is tiered according to your level of income and whether you hold an appropriate level of private hospital cover. The income levels and surcharges are: singles earning more than $90,000 (1%), $105,000 (1.25%) and more than $140,000 (1.5%) or couples and families with combined taxable incomes greater than $180,000## (1%), $210,000# (1.25%) and $280,000# (1.5%).

Understanding your extras cover

What is covered?

With extras cover, you can claim benefits for those services listed on your cover and that are not claimable elsewhere (eg from a third party like Medicare).

For example, Medicare does not provide benefits for:

  • most dental examinations and treatment
  • most physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, eye therapy, chiropractic services, podiatry or psychology services
  • acupuncture (unless part of a doctor’s consultation) or other natural therapies
  • glasses and contact lenses
  • most health aids and appliances
  • home nursing.

Extras cover allows you to claim benefits for extras services as long as:

  • the treatment is given by a private practice provider who is recognised and registered with us for benefit purposes
  • they meet the criteria set out in our policies and Fund Rules.

We recommend you contact us before making a booking to confirm how much you can claim and to check that your chosen provider is registered with us.

What is not covered?

Extras benefits will not be payable:

  • during a waiting period
  • where a third party, including Medicare, a Government body, or an insurance company provided a benefit (except for hearing aids and breast prosthesis items)
  • for different services within the same service type from the same provider on the same day. For example, if you went to see an acupuncturist and then received a massage from the same provider on the same day, you cannot claim for both services
  • when a prescribed treatment is not fully custom made (eg orthotics, surgical shoes)
  • when a provider is not recognised by us for benefit purposes
  • for any treatment or service rendered outside Australia
  • when you have reached the maximums on your product including annual, lifetime or service limits for the service you are claiming.

Waiting periods

The following waiting periods apply for extras cover:

  • initial waiting period – two months
  • Living Well – six months.

Understanding your ambulance cover

Emergency Ambulance definition

When you, your partner or your family take out our hospital cover, extras cover or packaged cover, you will receive capped cover for recognised emergency ambulance transport and on-the-spot treatment.

An emergency is when there is reason to believe that the patient’s life may be in danger or the patient should be attended to without undue delay.

Transportation means a journey from the place where immediate medical treatment is sought to the casualty department of a receiving hospital.

Emergency ambulance transportation is defined as air or road transportation by a Recognised Ambulance Provider of an unplanned and of a non-routine nature for the purpose of providing immediate medical attention to a person.

Benefits are not payable for:

  • transportation from a hospital to your home
  • transportation from a hospital to a nursing home
  • transportation from a hospital to another hospital where the customer has been admitted to the transferring (first) hospital
  • transportation from the person’s home, a nursing home or hospital for ongoing medical treatment, (eg chemotherapy, dialysis).

Ambulance Cover

We recommend that you take out an ambulance subscription with your recognised State Ambulance Provider if it’s available in your state (VIC, SA, NT and rural postcodes in WA).

We will only provide ambulance benefits, in accordance with your level of cover, when you do not hold a subscription with an ambulance provider and a state ambulance scheme does not provide cover.

NSW and ACT members: If you reside in New South Wales or the Australian Capital Territory and you have hospital cover, you pay an ambulance levy as part of your premium. This entitles you to free emergency ambulance transport under the State Government ambulance transport schemes. When you receive an account for ambulance transport, simply send it to us and we’ll endorse it for you to send back to the appropriate ambulance transport scheme.

QLD and TAS members: If you reside in Queensland or Tasmania, you are covered under your state service scheme.

VIC, SA, WA and NT members: If you reside in Victoria, South Australia, Western Australia or the Northern Territory you will receive cover for recognised emergency ambulance transport and on-the-spot treatment from us. This is as long as you don’t have an ambulance subscription with your state ambulance service or cover through a state-based arrangement.

Most state schemes cover their respective residents within their state of residence only. However, some states have entered into reciprocal agreements that allow you to be covered for ambulance services when you travel outside your state of residence. You should check with your state ambulance provider for when these reciprocal arrangements apply and the level of cover offered.

If you fall outside your state-based arrangement (including any reciprocal agreement) and are not covered for emergency ambulance services, you will be covered by Bupa up to the annual cap, as long as your level of cover contains ambulance cover and the services are provided by a recognised provider.
