nib No Gap & Known Gap specialist partners for hospital procedures

Heading to hospital can be daunting enough without the prospect of unexpected bills. That’s why we have special agreements with providers in select locations across Australia to reduce your out of pocket costs when you go to hospital. These arrangements are for certain procedures and available to Australian residents only.

These No Gap^ services can be accessed if the procedure or treatment is included in your policy (and you've served any waiting periods). The only cost will be your Hospital excess, if you have one.

No Gap hip and knee replacements

nib Clinical partners

Did you know that the average hip or knee replacement costs around $25,000? Our Clinical Partners program offers members access to a network of experienced orthopaedic surgeons, who won’t charge you any extra costs. Providing your hospital cover includes total hip and knee joint replacement surgery (item numbers: 49518, 49521, 49318, 49321, 49519 and 49319), you will only pay the hospital excess for your procedure (partial hip and knee replacements are not covered).

If your surgeon thinks you’re eligible, you can also recover in the comfort of your home through our Rehab at Home service, with experienced physiotherapists and other allied health professionals coming to you.

Check the fees for your anaesthetist and assistant surgeon before you book surgery as they are not a part of this arrangement and could charge you an out of pocket cost.

Ask your specialist if they can work with an anaesthetist who is part of our GapSure network, or use our Find a Provider tool to find a GapSure Anaesthetist.

^No Gap means there are no out-of-pocket costs for you to pay for your chosen cardiologist because we have an arrangement with this network of specialists that won’t charge you a fee above what we will pay for a cardiology procedure. Cover depends on level of cover, policy exclusions, waiting periods, hospital excess and limits and whether you go to an nib Agreement Hospital, a non-agreement private hospital or a public hospital. Out-of-pocket expenses may apply. For example, if your anaesthetist is not covered under nib’s GapSure, you will have to pay the gap fee.
