What is nib MediGap?

nib MediGap aims to eliminate the out of pocket costs nib members pay for inpatient medical and surgical fees. The MediGap benefit is higher than the Medicare Benefits Schedule (MBS) benefit, as outlined in more detail in the MediGap Schedule of Benefits.

As a registered MediGap provider, you have the right to decide on a case-by-case basis if you wish to participate. When you participate in MediGap for a patient, you agree not to charge the nib member any out of pocket costs for their inpatient service. The benefits to you as a provider include receiving faster payment from nib, not having to chase your patients for payment of their invoice, and being listed in our MediGap specialist search directory.

To claim MediGap benefits, you must first be registered for MediGap. You, the patient, and the claim must also meet the eligibility criteria set out in the MediGap Terms and Conditions.

Please note: Honeysuckle Health now manages nib's Hospital, MediGap and First Choice Network agreements. Learn more.
