HealthShare signs major health fund group to gap transparency scheme

Originally appeared in Pulse IT, July, 2017.

Digital health platform HealthShare has added the Australian Health Service Alliance (AHSA) to its Specialist cost transparency scheme, which allows GPs to use its Specialist directory to quickly find whether a medical Specialist participates in a fund’s no gap or known gap scheme through the GP’s clinical software.

AHSA represents 27 different private health insurance funds and joins market leaders HCF and Medibank in listing gap cover participation in HealthShare’s directory, which now covers most of the 37 funds in Australia.
