Hospital treatment cover
By taking out HCi private health insurance, you can be sure that if you or your family require hospital treatment you will have greater control over who, where and when you are treated. Thus, the waiting time for elective surgery will be significantly less than the public system in most cases. HCi provides access to over 500 private hospitals and day hospital facilities and more than 30,000 doctors.
Other health care treatments
Reduce surcharges and loadings
LHC is a financial loading that can be payable in addition to the base rate premium for your private health insurance hospital cover.
To avoid paying a LHC loading, you need to purchase hospital cover by 1 July following your 31st birthday. If you purchase hospital cover after this date you may be required to pay a LHC loading – 2% for each year you are over 30. For instance, if you wait until you are 40, you could be paying an extra 20% on the cost of your hospital cover. If you wait until you are 50, you could pay 40% more. And so on, up to a maximum of 70%.
HCi started in Burnie and remains in Burnie. This means that we are run by locals, for locals.
