Premier Providers

To make sure that you’re getting the proper care when you’re sick or visiting a medical practitioner, we will only pay benefits on services that are delivered by recognised practitioners. This is in place to protect us, as well as you.

This applies to all ancillary, dental and nursing or midwifery services. Recognition is subject to change without notice, so we recommend checking with Queensland Country that your preferred practitioner is recognised before starting treatment.

We also have agreements in place with certain providers to provide you with great discounts, so you get even more value for money. Find out more about our Premier Provider Network.

Recognition of providers is for the purpose of determining the payment of benefits and should not be taken or considered in any way as approval of, or any recommendation as to the qualifications and skills of, or services provided by, a practitioner or therapist.

Premier Provider Network

Queensland Country has a number of agreements in place with health care providers to provide you with exclusive discounts and services if you have Extras cover, as part of our Premier Provider Network.

We've recently negotiated agreements with a number of dentists and optometrists across the state, with more being added regularly.

Premier Provider Dentists 

Queensland Country has established our dental Premier Provider Network to make dental services more affordable for our Members in our local communities. All Members receive the same benefit entitlement on their particular Extras Cover. Members using a Premier Provider may have lower out of pocket expenses as a result of the Premier Providers agreeing to charge lower average fees for most dental services.

Our Premier Providers are not employees of Queensland Country Health Fund and are solely responsible for any warranties for work they perform.  If you have any concerns regarding the dental work you receive from a Premier Provider Dentist, you should first approach that provider to discuss the matter.  Please refer to our complaints/compliments page for more options.
