International Visitors First Choice Providers are medical centres, general practitioners, radiologists, pathologists, specialists, dentists and other providers who have agreements with nib. By using an nib International Visitors First Choice Provider you will have no or low out of pocket expenses and these providers will bill nib directly for your visit. If you visit a provider who is not a nib First Choice Provider, you may experience large out of pocket expenses and you will be required to pay the provider directly on the day of service prior to submitting your claim to nib for benefits to be paid.
Depending on your level of cover, you may still have to pay a gap or co-payment on the day of your visit to the Provider. This may occur if the charge is more than the benefit you are entitled to under your cover. In these instances you won’t be able to claim this from nib.
When making your appointment please advise the provider that you are covered by nib.
You’ll also need to take your nib Customer card and ID with you when attending your appointment.
The nib First Choice network is a community of trusted health partners including dentists, general practitioners and medical specialists designed to help our customers access care with peace of mind.
