Astute Bronze Plus Hospital

Astute Bronze Plus Hospital

Offers private hospital cover, with an excess, for the included clinical categories and can be packaged with one of our Extras products.

Astute Bronze Plus Hospital offers you top hospital cover for the clinical categories included, with a $250 or $500 excess.

Astute Bronze Plus Hospital can be taken as a stand-alone hospital product if you only need hospital cover, or you can tailor your own combined hospital and extras package by combining Astute Bronze Plus Hospital with one of our Extras products.

This product provides members with cover for more than the minimum clinical category services for a Bronze tier product however it has some exclusions and restriction benefits for psychiatric services.
The clinical category of hospital psychiatric services is a restricted service meaning the benefit is limited, once the excess is deducted, to the public hospital shared ward room rate if you elect to be treated as a private patient in a public hospital.  There is very limited cover for a restricted service in a private hospital. If you do elect to be treated in a private hospital for the restricted services significant out-of-pocket costs will apply.  Some clinical categories are excluded from cover and therefore no benefit is payable.
