The Healthscope agreement
Following months of negotiations, we're happy to confirm that we've reached an agreement with Healthscope^. Final agreements are now in place with all Healthscope hospitals.
This means that Teachers Health members can continue to access Healthscope’s 42 hospitals without paying additional out-of-pocket charges (for services included on their cover).
Quality and value for members
At Teachers Health, our members are at the heart of what we do, and we’re committed to achieving outcomes that are in your best interests. In this case, we took a stand for members who've raised concerns about the affordability of health insurance.
We have agreements with more than 540 private hospitals across the country. We negotiate these contracts to help members access quality care with minimal out-of-pocket costs.
In 2018/19, our members had no out-of-pocket costs for 9/10 inpatient services provided in hospital*.
