As part of our current private health insurer campaign, we met with Doctors Health Fund, which is part of the Avant Mutual Group. They were very supportive of our campaign.
We already have a strong partnership with Avant and given current circumstances it could be timely for you to revisit your own health insurance needs. As a courtesy to Avant the email below invites you to take a look at the product offering from Doctors Health Fund. No obligations – just for your consideration.
Does your Health Fund demand pre-approval of claims? Consider a switch to the Doctors Health Fund.
Many of you will be aware that certain health funds have recently denied particular claims for plastic surgery and are increasing their audit activities. With some health funds questioning the medical need for certain procedures, you may also be questioning whether the health fund you have chosen provides your family with the cover you desire and also supports our profession.
Health fund premiums are significant, and if your fund doesn’t recognise the importance of plastic and reconstructive surgery or have an appropriate claims assessment process, then why would you continue to support that fund? We encourage you to look at the alternatives now and a good place to start is Doctors’ Health Fund – it’s the only health fund established by doctors for doctors.
All Doctors’ Health Fund policies (even their entry-level cover) include full benefits for plastic and reconstructive surgery where Medicare pays a benefit. The fund recognises the importance of these procedures and the impact on the patients (and their treating surgeons) when this surgery isn’t covered. Another important distinction is that Doctors’ Health Fund uses Medicare’s determination as to whether a procedure is medically necessary.
Doctors’ Health Fund has a unique ‘Top Cover’ which provides medical benefits up to the AMA list of services and fees.
The Fund is part of Avant Mutual, so it’s the only fund ultimately owned by doctors.
Switching health funds is easy – Doctors’ Health Fund will handle the transfer on your behalf and waiting periods don’t have to be served if you transfer to an equivalent level of cover.
We urge you to review how your own health insurer performs on plastic surgery claims and call Doctors’ Health Fund on 1800 226 126, if your current fund doesn’t stack up, or visit our website.
