The Australian Government requires all health insurance providers and members to incorporate a program of fraud control as part of their overall risk management strategy. Our objective is to minimise loss from fraud so that we can maximise the amount available for benefit payments to you.
We use an independent firm and our own teams to investigate suspected instances of fraud. Our aim is to recover any money and, more importantly, deter further fraudulent behaviour.
The easiest way to help is to simply be aware of what you are being billed for. Make sure the dates of service are correct and that you received the treatment recorded. It is also important to treat your member card like a credit card, and not to leave it with any provider. If your card is lost, please report it to us straight away.
If you have reason to suspect fraudulent activity, please call us on 134 148 or email us at email@example.com. You can choose to remain anonymous but please be assured that we follow high standards of investigative practice and always protect the interests of all parties.
