Bupa and Ramsay Health Care continue contract negotiations


Bupa today reassured its members they remain fully covered and can continue to access a no gap experience on admission to Ramsay Health Care hospitals until at least October 1, 2022 as Bupa continues to work towards an agreement with Ramsay.

Despite Ramsay ending its current contract with Bupa on August 2, there are no immediate changes to the coverage for Bupa members. Bupa members remain fully covered at Ramsay hospitals until at least 1 October 2022, with some treatments including maternity and oncology, and any treatments already commenced covered up to August 2023. 

Bupa Health Insurance Managing Director Chris Carroll thanked members for their patience as Bupa worked towards an agreement that put our members first and helped minimise premium increases for our members while balancing hospital costs.

We want to move beyond this impasse and are continuing our efforts to reach an agreement that benefits our members and addresses health care costs.

Chris Carroll, Bupa Health Insurance Managing Director

“We are continuing our discussions with Ramsay and are hopeful of reaching an agreement soon. 

“We want our members to know that our first priority in our negotiations with Ramsay has been to keep healthcare costs affordable especially when cost of living pressures continue to impact families.”
