At a time of widespread devastation due to the bushfires across Australia, we want to do what we can to help members.
For Avant members adversely affected by the bushfires between November 2019 and January 2020, we will waive your premium for three months, without impacting your cover.
For this assistance, members need to:
Please contact us on 1800 128 268 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss your situation and how we can assist. This may also mean relief on other Avant Mutual Group or Doctors’ Health Fund products you hold.
The current bushfire crisis is causing tremendous stress in many communities and health practitioners are responding to issues, often in emergency conditions, without access to the usual resources.
Avant considers services provided to patients and communities in emergencies, such as these, to be covered by our practitioner and practice policies (subject to the terms conditions and exclusions in the policies).
Should you have any questions, contact our medico-legal advice line on 1800 128 268. Details of other support services are available on our website.
Our thoughts and best wishes are with all those affected.
