ACD guide for private health insurance claims

College, in collaboration with the Australian Society of Plastic Surgeons, General Surgeons Australia and the Australian Medical Association, has developed a guide for medical practitioners to assist with completion of Type C Banding Certification for private health insurance claims.

Patients admitted to hospital for certified Type C procedures may qualify for private health insurance benefits. This guide has been designed to assist practitioners in completing certification to ensure that the patient receives their entitled private cover. It describes the criteria in which admitted care is necessary for acceptable medical practice, including for patients with certain chronic conditions or referred rural patients.
