What can I use a medical loan for?
A medical expenses loan can help to cover your medical bills as well as other costs related to your treatment and recovery, from medication to travel, or living costs if you’re taking time off work.
Medical loans from Harmoney aren’t tied to a specific health issue or health care provider, so you can borrow money for a dental loan, cosmetic surgery loan or any other purpose.
Can I combine my loan with my health insurance?
If you can use your health insurance to pay some of your medical expenses, that could mean you don’t need to borrow as much on a loan, which will make repayment easier. Check with your health fund provider if you’re not sure what’s covered.
Do I need to use a certain health provider?
No, Harmoney medical loans are not tied to any specific medical provider or insurer. You’re free to use any private or public health service you choose, just let us know your plans when you apply for your loan.
Can I increase an existing loan?
If you need more money, you might be able to top up an existing Harmoney loan (if you’ve been making repayments for 6 months already) or you might consider a refinancing option such as debt consolidation.
Read our Top Up guide to find out if you’re eligible.

About medical expenses loans
Whether a medical emergency’s come out of the blue or there’s a treatment you don’t want to delay, a medical expenses loan can be a valuable lifeline.
When you’re comparing medical loans, you need to be sure that the one you choose suits your circumstances and covers everything you need it to, which could be more than medical bills alone.
One important distinction between loans is whether they’re secured or unsecured.
Unsecured medical loan
An unsecured loan is not protected by an underlying asset. This means that you won’t have to put forward some of your own property (such as a house, car or expensive jewellery) to secure the loan, and risk losing it if you’re unable to pay your loan back as agreed.
Like all our personal loans, Harmoney medical expenses loans are unsecured.
Secured medical loan
A secured loan is protected by an underlying asset. Advantages of secured loans is that they can sometimes have lower requirements or a slightly lower interest rate, but this must be weighed against the risk of losing your property.
Harmoney does not offer secured loans.
Medical payment plans
Many health providers offer payment plans through a third-party finance company. These are usually instalment plans that can help you avoid paying out-of-pocket medical expenses on the day by making regular payments until your bill is settled. Unlike a personal loan, these payment plans only cover your medical fees and don’t extend to other expenses you may need help with.
Specialised medical loan
Some providers offer financing related to a specific service, such as a surgery loan, dental loan or cosmetic surgery loan. While these loans are designed for the specific needs of people choosing these treatments, they’re usually secured by an asset and may have less favourable terms than a personal loan.
Fixed and variable rates
Another important point to compare if you want to avoid surprises on your loan is whether it has a fixed or variable interest rate. A fixed rate, as the name suggests, remains the same all through your loan, so your repayments won’t increase. However, a variable rate may rise or fall based on market forces.
A fixed rate loan is the best choice if you want to know exactly how much to budget for every month and avoid the gamble of variable interest. All Harmoney loans have a fixed interest rate.
