You can find general information about what your plan covers on our What am I covered for? page. It explains what consultations and treatments are included, along with any terms and conditions that apply.
I've already booked a consultation or treatment. Am I covered?
If you've already made a booking, it's easy to check if you're covered and for how much. Just login to my nib or use the nib app to view your policy.
I need a referral. What next?
You have the freedom to choose who you see for your treatment. Just ask your GP for a generic referral letter and two or three recommendations on who to see.
You can then use our Find a Provider directory to see whether the healthcare providers are part of our First Choice network and can provide you with a hassle-free claim experience.
If you've been referred to a specialist or for diagnostic investigations, or if you're having surgery or cancer treatment, we recommend applying for a pre-approval. You can apply with my nib or through your First Choice network healthcare provider. It's better to do this before your treatment, so you can be sure your eligible costs will be covered*. Find out more about pre-approvals.
*Up to your benefit limit, subject to any excess payable and in line with your policy terms.
