Why private health insurance?

Good health tops everything. So when it comes to looking after your (or your family’s) health, you may want choice over when and where you’re treated. Plus there are the lifestyle benefits that come with having private health insurance for extras like dental, optical and physio.

Even if you’re healthy, we’ll give you the support you need to stay at the top of your game, including health and fitness offers and free programs like free + active.

Accident Injury Benefit

Life happens. And though you probably haven’t thought much about what to do in the event of an accident, you’ll be glad to know we have. So if you have an Accident you’ll receive all of the coverage of our top level hospital cover – no matter what level of Cover you have.#

Get more back for kids

It can be expensive bringing up a family. That’s why for kids, we provide no hospital excess on every one of our family hospital covers. We also offer 100% back on included extras at Members' Choice providers, as part of our Growing Family and Settled Families covers.^

Government Incentives

To encourage more Australians to take up health cover, the government offers incentives like the Australian Government Rebate (AGR) to make private health insurance more affordable.

Having private hospital cover also means you may be able to avoid the Lifetime Health Cover loading and the Medicare Levy Surcharge.
