Is the membership a private healthcare insurance policy?

No it is not. The Plan is a membership plan and not an insurance policy and its benefits are offered on a discretionary basis.

What does discretionary basis mean?

This means that you do not have an automatic right to access membership benefits. We have an appointed, experienced Discretionary Panel that examines and reviews the member’s eligibility for assistance. 

The Discretionary Panel is independent and has absolute discretion as to whether to grant access to the benefits. In making their decision the Panel review each case to confirm eligibility for benefits under the Members Guide terms and conditions and also ensure that access is medically necessary in their professional opinion.  You can learn more about discretion and the Discretionary Panel in the Members Guide.

How will I access treatment if I am diagnosed with cancer?

Following diagnosis from your specialist, The Membership Benefits Service Team determines whether the initial diagnosis can be confirmed and relates to an eligible condition and procedure. Upon the discretionary panel authorising your benefits, we will provide written confirmation of the Treatment Plan to be carried out at the chosen Rutherford Cancer Centre.

What doesn't the Membership Plan cover?

The Plan does not provide benefits for a condition that was pre-existing in the 10 years prior to your membership first being taken out. It also does not include non-malignant skin cancer or cancer in-situ. Treatment and/or services not considered by us to be medically necessary are also excluded.. For a full list of all exclusions please see section 5 in the Membership Guide. 

How can I become a Member?

How do I make changes to my Membership?

Do I have a say in my treatment?

You will be provided with your Treatment Plan and of course you may discuss the treatment with the Specialist Oncologist. You may also discuss your treatment with the Membership Benefits Service Team provider (Northcott Global Solutions) to voice any concerns.

Can I be confident that the membership will cover all costs?

All costs will be covered up to the maximum amounts as laid out in the Benefits Table, which can be referenced in your Members Guide.

Does the Plan cover all medical expenses?

Yes, the Membership Plan will pay for all medical expenses as authorised in your Treatment Plan and detailed in the Benefits Table. For a full list please read section 4.2 of the Membership guide.

What is the process for making a claim?

Following an initial diagnosis by your Specialist, simply contact the Membership Benefits Service Team which is operated and administered on our behalf by NGS (Northcott Global Solutions).
