Before you book into a hospital it is important that you contact us to check:
- that your level of Hospital cover is adequate
- if any waiting periods apply
- if the hospital holds an agreement with Teachers Health Fund
We can also help you to find out if you will have any out-of-pocket expenses to help avoid unexpected costs.
Agreement Private Hospitals and Day Surgeries
Teachers Health Fund holds agreements with an extensive network of Australian private hospitals and day surgeries. These agreements ensure that hospital charges for accommodation, theatre, labour ward, coronary care and intensive care are covered when you are admitted as an inpatient at those hospitals - subject to your level of cover. If your preferred hospital does not have an agreement with Teachers Health Fund, you may find your treatment will incur significant out-of-pocket expenses.
