Waiting period exemption for psychiatric care benefits
The Federal Government’s private health insurance reforms now allows eligible consumers an instant policy upgrade to cover a private psychiatric hospital admission without serving a waiting period*. The changes, which make it easier for policy holders to access mental health services when they need it, came into effect on 1 April 2018.
*The waiting period does not apply to upgrades where consumers have already served their 2 month waiting period on lower cover policies.
People caring for people.
Ramsay Health Care’s slogan “People Caring for People” was developed over 25 years ago and has become synonymous with the way we operate our business. We recognise that we operate in an industry where “care” is not just a value statement, but a critical part of the way we must go about our daily operations in order to meet the expectations of our customers – our patients and our staff.
