Access Gap Cover is available with all TUH hospital policies and aims to eliminate or cap out-of-pocket medical costs incurred during hospital admission. Medical costs are the fees your specialist or doctor charges you for your hospital treatment.
For new members or members upgrading their cover, a two month waiting period applies for all hospital services and home care programs. With the exception of pre-existing conditions, and pregnancy and birth, which have a 12 month waiting period.Find out more
