Deciding to terminate a pregnancy is a big decision. You may have a thousand questions that you want to talk to someone about or find out what your options are.
Contact our Health Assist team who are on hand to talk to you about your concerns and help you find the support and help that you need.
Our International Health team are able to assist you in locating a doctor and hospital to perform the termination. This includes:
- Locating a doctor gynaecologist participating in our Access Gap Cover (AGC) scheme

Does OSHC cover the cost?
If you're planning to have the procedure, it is important to call us first so we can assist with locating a doctor and an agreement hospital. We will advise you what you're covered for and check that you've served any relevant waiting periods.
This can help you avoid any unnecessary out-of-pocket expenses and allow you to make informed choices and be confident about what to expect when using your cover.
You may be asked to pay the fees on or before the attendance. Once you have had the treatment and have the itemised receipt, you can make a claim.
We will reimburse you 100% of the Medicare Schedule Benefits (MBS) fee.
