We’re pleased to announce that we have reached an agreement with Healthscope Hospital Group.
Some weeks ago, we wrote to members informing of a change to our agreement with Healthscope Hospital Group. At the time we had received a notice of contract termination from Healthscope. Although we were still in negotiations with Healthscope, and both parties continued to seek a mutually agreeable outcome, we needed to provide our members adequate notice of the potential termination, as it would affect their level of benefits if they needed to attend a Healthscope hospital.
This agreement with Healthscope Hospital Group means we can continue to provide coverage for our members at Healthscope’s 42 private hospitals across Australia. It also means you won’t have to pay additional out of pocket costs for services included in your cover if you’re admitted to a Healthscope hospital.
This outcome means members should disregard the previous communication sent advising that the agreement with Healthscope would end on 14 June 2020.
Australian Unity is committed to providing our members with private hospital cover that represents the highest quality and best value.
We have agreements with over 500 private hospitals across Australia and as a proud 180 year old member-owned organisation are committed to negotiating contracts that provide the best outcomes for our members.
We apologise for any inconvenience that may have been caused to our members during this time.
