Disclosing information about provider numbers to third parties

AMT represents appropriately qualified members to the various private health funds under specific agreements with the funds. In fulfilling this function, AMT effectively applies to the funds for provider status on behalf of the member. This requires AMT to guarantee that members meet the provider criteria set by the funds.

In managing this process, AMT has a clearly defined relationship with both the private health insurers and the members we represent. To be eligible as health fund providers, AMT members are required to abide by AMT’s codes and standards. Once a member becomes a provider, they must also abide by the provider terms and conditions of the private health insurance companies.

AMT does not share information about a member’s provider numbers with third parties such as business owners, employers or practice managers.

AMT will not share a member’s provider number information with these third parties because we have no relationship with the third party.

AMT will not share a member’s provider number information with a third party because the third party is not bound by AMT’s standards and codes, and is not accountable to AMT.

AMT will not share a member’s provider number information with a third party because the third party is not bound by the provider terms and conditions set by the private health insurers.

AMT will not share a member’s provider number information with a third party because the third party does not pay a membership fee to be represented by AMT.

AMT will not share a member’s provider number information with a third party because there are privacy implications in doing so.

AMT will not share a member’s provider number information with a third party because we represent our members, not businesses and clinics.

Members are welcome to make inquiries about their own provider numbers direct with AMT.

Thank you for respecting AMT's policy in this area.
