I have given Franks a run for my money, when I make a query or complain they have always been professional & responsive, and attended to my claims quickly, also my I had a issue with my LTH Cover, I found where the error was it was from previous fund and Frank refunded my monies straight away. thank you
Affordable and decent coverage
I am the person who always shops around for a good deal. And Frank is one of the most affordable, with a respectable coverage. Frank is also part of GMHBA, which is not-for-profit company. I have been with Frank for years, and every year I will try to find a better deal elsewhere, but nothing beats Frank.
This is the year I finally have to leave Frank for another provider.
I have Hospital and Extras cover, but I have never made a Hospital claim until now. Frank does not participate in the Access Gap Cover scheme. I found out about this schem...e which means that specialist and private hospitals who participates in this scheme will have a fixed/known gap which is usually capped at $500 per specialist. Their parent GMHBA participates in this scheme, but Frank doesn't. Most of my claims are for Extras and benefits can be accessed via HICAPS on the spot when I receive treatment. If I forget my card, I can quickly lodge a claim on their website - it's also quick to approve and pays you the benefit fast too! The Extras allowance for Frank is very generous compared to many health funds for the services that I use. So I recommend comparing it with the services you’re using as it may defer from mine. As a member, you need to comfortable interacting with them via the computer - they are quick to respond to your queries. If you need to see someone in a retail space, this is not for you. But if you're tech-savvy enough, you save heaps! They have an internal mail system through the web portal or Live Chat, which are always helpful. If you prefer to speak to someone over the phone, they’re also available.
can't live without health cover
no claim as yet, ask me in a months time
Don't know card doesn't say
Don't ask people to do a survey then tell then how many words to right, that is very rude, if you're not satisfied don't ask
Good Coverage, Easy to deal with
Good value for the hospital & essential extras bundle. Have been with them for a few years, and even got money back. No issues with hospital day surgery claims. I would like to see a choice for the excess instead of the $750 only being offered and 50% for Day Surgery.
Frank are neat
Extras are great value. 50/80% pay-back at the counter makes appointments with allied health providers so affordable! Haven't had to use hospital so can't comment about that. Online systems are a little buggy/confusing (and if you ever have to call be prepared for a long wait), but the team are pleasant and helpful.
So far so good, and expect this to continue
Policy is great value, only offering the things I need not offering me things that are of absolutely no use to me as is offered by my current health fund
October 28th 2019 Update: Good product, nicely priced
Havent had to use the insurance yet, and hope it will be some time before I ever need it ..... but so far the experience has been positive and expect this to continue into the future.
I have already been in hospital this year and paid $500 excess and now been told that I have to pay another $250 excess in July when I go in again because of the excess now being $750. I was told previously that I was covered for the year and wouldn’t have to pay again when I asked so I stayed with Frank who I have been happy with but $750 excess for an overnight or day surgery is just too much.
More about extras
I thought the policy was good value when i changed to it 2 years ago from another similar cover. And compared to a lot of others it is better value.
I am happy with the higher 60 % rebate. Never a problem to claim. But I don't like the fact that for eg. naturopathic & homeopathic is no longer inc. in any health insurance. + the other dozen or more modalities wiped from health insurance.
I like the fact that I can suspend my insurance if i'm out of the country for longer than a month.
I've been with Frank since Augst of 2018, and I recently have frozen shoulder/upper back pain and found out the amount and percentage of the maximum cover is not much especially the service fee is high. If you're currently in pain and don't know how long it takes for it to heal before having to pay 100% out of pocket especially when you paying for the insurance policy but is still not enough to cover therefore it doesn't feel right at all.
I hope you guys can review and reconsider to increase an additional $100.00 and increase the 60% to 80...% instead for the maximum coverage for the following below, to me preventative services is much cheaper than the cost of surgeries. Exercise/Hydro/Myo/Physio $300.00 Acu/Nat/Homeo/Massage $400.00 Chiro/Osteo $300.00 Thank you for your help. Tami Nguyen
Dont love it but dont hate it
Around 3 to 4 years. Have compared other health insurances each year but always continue with Frank as they're good for my needs
I have only just goi it, so early days still
I have only been with the insurance company for one month. So it is early days still for me but I have no complaints so far.
not sure how long of being a member, a few years, staff have been very helpful when making inquiries. Being a pensioner, premiums are getting very expensive.
Better than the rest
I have been in a health fund continuously for 34 years, many different ones: Medibank private, Budapest, Government Employees Health Fund included. This fund, that I have been with now for over 5 years, has been great for me and my husband. We have been very happy with the benefits we have received. All health fund premiums are expensive but at least this fund has been more generous than others in terms of our claims.
Private health gives you options.
I was with Medibank private and asked choice to fine me a more affordable insurance. They selected Frank. I am happy with Frank at the moment. I have been with Frank 3-4 years.
Good cover but very expensive
I have been with the company approx. 5 years great cover especially extras but them to be quite expensive and price goes up regularly every year
