Health Insurance Funding
Funding for surgical procedures is now determined by health insurance companies on the basis of ‘tiered levels’ of cover. The levels of cover are Platinum (top), Gold, Silver, Bronze and Basic/extras. All procedures/operations have a required minimum cover for them to be funded, and there may be restrictions on the type of operations that are covered (e.g. out patient procedures or cosmetic procedures). Information on this website is provided as a guide only and specific approval must be sought from your health fund.
