Private Health Insurer Code Changes

On 21 January 2011, the industry was notified that The Doctors’ Health Fund Limited fund code would change from AMA to DHF from 1 July 2011 (PHI 06/11).

It has recently come to light that the DHF code is used by another health insurer in their Medicare claiming. As this would cause some confusion, and given time constraints, this change will not proceed as originally proposed from 1 July 2011.

Accordingly, The Doctors’ Health Fund Limited code will remain as AMA until further notice.

If you require further information please telephone: (02) 6289 9853/24 hr answering machine or email the enquiry to Private Health Insurance Branch
