Bupa, Cabrini Health partner for at-home hospital care

Cabrini Health and Bupa have formed a strategic partnership to expand new models of care services, as part of an extension of their contract.

The contract and partnership will see Bupa fund part of Cabrini’s innovative alternative models of care with a focus on care in the home, while also ensuring Bupa customers will be covered with no additional out-of-pocket hospital costs from Cabrini.

Cabrini Health Chief Executive Officer Sue Williams said, “We’ve been developing new models of care for some time now, and this partnership with Bupa recognises our innovation in home care and support, following a hospital admission.”

Bupa Health Insurance Managing Director Chris Carroll said the partnership was an example of providers and funders working collaboratively with a ‘patient first’ mindset.

Carroll said, “This partnership shows what’s possible when hospitals and insurers work together to address the challenges in the health system, with the end goal being affordable, high-value private health care which supports a strong and sustainable Australian healthcare sector.”
