First Choice Network

Connecting quality healthcare professionals with more than one million members.

What is nib's First Choice Network?

The First Choice Network is a community of trusted healthcare professionals who provide health services at a set reduced cost or agreed discount to nib members to help lower out of pocket costs. The agreed reduced cost can vary between First Choice providers; however, you agree not to exceed the set reduced cost.

Providers who join the First Choice Network benefit from having their services promoted to nib members looking for treatment.

To ensure our members enjoy the same experience no matter which practitioner they visit, your whole practice will be asked to become part of the nib First Choice Network.
