Blood tests

A blood test is any test designed to discover abnormalities in a sample of a person's blood, such as the presence of alcohol, drugs or bacteria or to determine the blood group.

Important note about blood tests

The Scheme does not cover some blood tests (such as the ALCAT test). 

The way we pay for blood tests depends on whether you have the blood test in- or out-of-hospital

Blood tests done in-hospital

We pay for the blood tests from the Hospital Benefit up to a maximum of the Scheme Rate as long as it is related to your confirmed hospital admission.

Blood tests done out-of-hospital

We will pay these claims from your Medical Savings Account (MSA), as long as you have funds available.
