Am I eligible for the mental health waiver?

To be able to access the one-off exemption, members need to meet the following criteria:

  • Must be admitted under the care or by referral from a consultant Psychiatrist or Addiction Specialist.
  • Must currently have hospital cover and held the cover for a minimum of two months.
  • Not have previously used the mental health exemption with Westfund or any previous health fund (lifetime limit per person).
  • Westfund must be advised within five business days of the admission date.

As always, we recommend contacting us to discuss any future admissions.
