BUPA to do the Right Thing by Policy Holders Following Ombudsman Intervention
AMA President, Dr Tony Bartone, said today that, following the intervention of the Private Health Insurance Ombudsman (PHIO), Australia’s largest private health fund, BUPA, will restore benefits to its policy holders.
In response to the PHIO intervention, BUPA will restore future access to ‘no gap’ schedules for private patients in public hospital emergency departments.
Dr Bartone said that both the PHIO announcement and the BUPA response are welcome and very important at a time of significant reform in the private health sector.
