Message from Medibank:
3. Gift Cards/ Gift Vouchers
There appears to be confusion as to whether a gift card or voucher can be used to claim a benefit from Medibank or ahm. Medibank/ahm does not pay benefits for services when the services are fully covered by a third party. This applies to gift cards and vouchers. Should you require further information in relation to Medibank rules and policies please refer to our Member Guide (available here). Medibank’s Fund Rules and policies are summarised in the Member Guide. The Member Guide details when benefits are not payable.
Health Fund Providers Reminder
The following is not a NEW Requirement but a reminder to remain compliant with Provider Health Fund Agreements.
Providers who allow their First Aid, Insurance, CPE Points and/or Member Subscriptions lapse, have their Provider status suspended until they bring their requirements into currency. To avoid disruption to your business, please renew on or before Renewal Dates. Remember to send in copies of evidence of renewal so records can be updated.
