What are the changes to Hospital covers?
There are two key changes that will impact members – standard clinical categories and Gold/Silver/Bronze/Basic product categories.
- Standard Clinical Categories
To make it easier for members to understand their cover, the Government is introducing standard clinical categories that come into effect on 1 April 2019. Each clinical category has a defined scope of cover, and a list of treatments that are included.

- Gold, Silver, Bronze, Basic product categories
All hospital products will be classified into one of the following categories: Gold, Silver, Bronze or Basic. For each category, there are a minimum number of clinical categories that must be covered.
