Private Health Insurer Code Changes

On 30 June 2015, Healthguard Health Benefits Fund Ltd merged with HBF Health Benefits Fund Ltd.

As a consequence of this Healthguard’s private health insurer code (HHB) will be removed as a valid code from 1 July 2015, relevant transactions should instead be reported under the HBF private health insurer code (HBF). This includes among other things, transactions with hospitals, and data submissions to Medicare Australia, the Department of Health, the State Health Authorities and the Australian Taxation Office.

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