nib's First Choice Network

Connecting quality healthcare professionals with our one million customers

Our community of trusted health professionals

We want to help our customers access high standards of service and care. It’s all about creating a health care community our customers can trust.

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


Turn nib customers into your new patients

We’ll promote the benefits of the network to our customers and make it easy for them to find your practice on the nib website. They’ll minimise out-of-pocket costs at any nib First Choice practice and enjoy the convenience of on the spot claiming.

We require nib First Choice practices have electronic claiming so it’s easy and convenient for nib customers to claim. nib’s schedule of treatment fees will be supplied as part of the application process.


Quality of care is important

nib First Choice partners will meet our required standards for qualifications, facilities equipment and care. It's all part of nib First Choice and why our customers should choose our network providers first.

We’d like to encourage applications from professionals who demonstrate they meet the nib standards for qualifications, facilities, equipment and care. Please read our eligiility criteria to learn more.
