Member Rewards Programs

Member Rewards Programs

You can enjoy the benefits of GMHBA’s member loyalty program, Connect Rewards Plus, when you hold selected combined hospital and extras cover.

This program allows members to accumulate Connect Rewards dollars year on year.

The amount of dollars you receive depends on how long you have been a GMHBA member and on your level of hospital cover. So, the longer you have been with us the more rewards dollars you will receive.

Here's how it works

The table below details the Connect Rewards Plus dollars earned based on members tenure and level of hospital cover.

Connect Rewards Plus benefit entitlements remain available while selected combined hospital and extras cover is maintained continuously.
