nib MediGap

nib MediGap is a no-gap scheme that 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 will be listed on nib’s find a provider search tool and you have the right to decide on a case-by-case basis if you wish to participate.

nib GapSure Anaesthetics network

This first of its kind network is designed to provide anaesthetists with more certainty in billing through a single, uniformed unit value, and the ability to charge a known gap for those more complex procedures. Importantly, it will give your patients greater certainty when it comes to claiming and out-of-pocket expenses.

Unique features of the nib GapSure Anaesthetics network include:

  • Single RVG unit value - The nib GapSure Anaesthetics network applies a single uniformed value of $41 per unit on all MBS Item numbers with ASA RVG unitisation
  • Known gap - A discretionary $500 known gap is permissible. The application of this known gap is only applicable to procedures with 5 and above RVG base units
  • The nib GapSure Anaesthetics network is not discretionary. Once registered, the application of the network schedule is applicable to all your nib patients, rather than the current case by case opt-in opt-out nature of current schemes
  • Plus, the network covers all locations you work from.
