What do Gold, Silver and Basic mean?
The terms in brackets tell you which Hospital insurance tier the cover sits in. The tiers were introduced by the government to make it easier to compare cover. If we’ve added a ‘Plus’, the cover includes more than the minimum services that have to be in that tier – sometimes a lot more, so don’t be put off by the fact there are a few Basic Plus options.
*These services are brought to members through Teachers Healthcare Services (THS), an initiative of Teachers Health. THS supports our members’ health and wellbeing through quality, evidence-based health management programs and services. To be eligible for a THS program you need to have Teachers Health Hospital cover and have served any relevant waiting periods. Additional eligibility criteria may apply.
