Fee schedule

GU has published their own fee schedule (see links above), which was originally identical to the AHSA fee schedule. However, from 2019, there have been some differences, so a new schedule specific for GU has been added to AA.



Since leaving AHSA, GU has adopted a policy of a maximum copayment of $400 per episode of treatment. This is different to the $400 per item policy of AHSA. A new warning has been incorporated into AA to alert you if you add a copayment above $400 to a GU account.


Owned by NIB

GU health is now owned by NIB, but there is no suggestion that the no-copayment policy of NIB will be adopted.
