Hospital and Doctor’s gap Show content
What is a ‘gap’? Show content
A gap is the amount of the medical bill that remains to be paid by the patient after Medicare and/or private health funds have paid their share.
All of CUA Health Hospital Cover options include ‘gap cover’, which means that if your doctor and hospital agree to treat you on the ‘Access Gap Cover Scheme’ you will have little to no gap to pay.
It’s always a good idea to ask your doctor or medical provider for an estimate of any out of pocket expenses you may incur, particularly if you’re having surgery.
