What is direct billing?

Direct billing is an arrangement with hospitals and clinics where you pay for medical treatment directly. This means you won’t be out of pocket for your treatment costs. It comes as standard on all our health plans when you’re admitted to a hospital in our medical network for in-patient or day-patient treatment. You can also choose direct billing for outpatient treatment with some plans if you’re living in a country where direct billing is common. This means you’ll be settle your bills for doctor and specialist consultations directly with the clinic.

Direct billing network includes local doctors (GPs) and specialists who submit your claims to insurance providers directly. The insurance providers organize payment to be made directly to them, to give you a seamless electronic process which means you don’t have to fill out paperwork to have your claim processed.

Please note: MBS fees will be charged following the terms of some insurance providers. You should always check with your provider if they have a gap fee before incurring any costs.

I trust Allianz Care since it is one of the largest insurance companies in Australia, with the medical centres where I only have to pay for what is left from insurance support. (no need to claim later). Besides, those centres are located at the centre of the city, close to schools. Very convenient, right? Credits to Allianz Care for providing reliable medical centres for health check and treatments.

I’ve been living with homestay family for 2 years. I’m now 19, I can move out but I don’t want to leave my host, who has become my family. It feels like I’ve met my second family. Thanks OSHCstudents for sending me to this homestay!

I realised how important insurance was when I started living in Australia. There I switched to using Allianz Care instead of the previous service. Allianz Care is extraordinarily good in its consulting service and customer care. I’ve learned a lot about Australian health care, also I was consulted with mental issues and how to live a healthy lifestyle. I am very happy now.

Thanks to Allianz Care, every time I claimed my medical receipts it processed much more quickly and easily than I expected. I was initially a bit concerned since Allianz Care is more expensive than other insurance companies, but now I can ensure that it is totally worth the money.
