Will your Health Insurance cover you and your Baby?

Glengarry has agreements with all health funds, minimising up-front, out-of-pocket expenses for members. If your level of cover specifies that an excess or co-payment is payable, then you will be required to pay this on admission.

We strongly recommend that you contact your health fund regarding your coverage to ensure you have appropriate cover.

Glengarry Private Hospital will submit your hospital claim to your health fund on your behalf; however you will remain responsible for submission of all other accounts (e.g. Obstetricians, Anaesthetists, Paediatrician Doctor's fees, Pathology and Radiology, etc).

If you have any queries regarding costs in relation to your upcoming admission, please contact us on (08) 94470111.  We know that health and billing charges can be difficult to understand and we are happy to assist in any way we can, however we also advise that you seek clarification from your doctor and health fund.
