New healthcare services to be Affiliated Provider-only

Friday, 12 June 2015 by Kelsey Fletcher


 We are planning to make a number of new healthcare services Affiliated Provider-only.

We hope to have agreements in place as soon as possible. This means Southern Cross members on most policies are reimbursed for these healthcare services only if they are carried out by an Affiliated Provider.

We are in the process of contacting providers of these services who do not already have Affiliated Provider agreements to discuss what is required to enter into agreements for these services.
