Medibank Private Cuts Member Benefits

TissuPath, alongside other pathology and diagnostic imaging providers, were advised in June 2014 that Medibank Private would change the way it funds insured patient care.

This means that patients, who expect to be fully covered under their policies for hospital stays, will now face out of pocket expenses as Medibank Private will only pay up to the Medicare scheduled fee.

TissuPath is currently exploring options to transition through this period so as to assist clinicians and their patients operate in this new environment. New arrangements at TissuPath will commence from 17 May 2015.
