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 loan guides to find out if you’re eligible.

About medical loans
Whether it’s ongoing treatment, rehabilitation, an unexpected injury or a long-planned procedure, a medical expenses loan can ease the financial burden of your treatment and let you focus on your recovery.
Before applying, it’s important to understand the various features of a medical expenses loan and how they will affect you.
Unsecured medical loan
An unsecured loan does not require an asset, such as property or a vehicle, to be put forward as security. This means if you default on the loan you don’t risk losing your asset.
Medical expenses loans from Harmoney are always unsecured.
Secured medical loan
Secured loans often have lower interest rates than unsecured loans, but they carry a higher risk. A secured loan requires an asset to be offered up as collateral, such as a computer or jewellery. If you are unable to make the repayments on a secured loan your assets are repossessed and sold to cover the cost of your loan.
We do not offer secured loans at Harmoney.
Medical payment plans
Medical payment plans are offered by many health providers as an alternative to upfront payment of medical bills. They involve payments made at regular intervals until the debt is settled. Where these loans differ from personal medical loans is that they only cover medical bills, the loan cannot be used to cover other costs such as equipment, or everyday expenses if you are forced to take time off work.
Specialised medical loan
Medical, dental and cosmetic procedures can sometimes carry their own specialised loans; however, they often have unattractive terms such as high interest rates, long loan terms and the requirement for assets as security.
Fixed and variable rates
It’s important to understand the difference between fixed and variable interest rates and how they will affect your medical loan.
A variable interest rate rises and falls based on market values, meaning your repayments could differ greatly from month to month. A fixed rate remains the same throughout the term of the loan, meaning your repayments will stay the same every month.
Harmoney medical loans always have a fixed interest rate so you know what you’ll be paying from start to finish.
