We’ll be able to offer discounts to 18-29 year-olds taking out eligible hospital cover.
We’ll also offer hospital products with a $750 excess. Choosing a product with a higher excess can help reduce your health cover premiums.
From 1 April 2019, as part of the government changes, all private health insurers will no longer be permitted to pay benefits towards some natural therapy services.
We’ll begin to use ‘standard clinical definitions’ across our website and whenever you hear from us. We may also update the name of your product so it can be classified as ‘Basic’, ‘Bronze’, ‘Silver’ or ‘Gold’, to make it easier to compare.

Understanding the changes
You will only need to serve waiting periods for services not previously included under your cover or for any increased benefits or limits.
If you close your cover and re-join Medibank within 2 months, we will honour the Young Adult Discount percentage you had prior to closing your cover. This will only apply where your new hospital cover is eligible for the Young Adult Discount.
Following 1 April 2019, if you transfer from another insurer and you received the Young Adult Discount on your previous cover, Medibank will recognise that discount percentage on the eligible Medibank hospital cover. You just need to join Medibank within 2 months of leaving your previous insurer. Medibank will need a transfer certificate from the other insurer to confirm this.
€ For new members on new memberships who join and start eligible combined Bronze hospital and extras cover or above from 25 January 2023 and who have not held Medibank health cover in previous 60 days (unless they are dependents coming off their parent’s cover). Must quote promo code ‘4WEEKSPLUS’ and set up direct debit when joining. Excludes Hospital only cover, Extras only cover, Basic covers, Corporate covers, Accident Cover, Ambulance Cover, Overseas Visitors Health Cover, Overseas Students Health Cover (OSHC), Overseas Workers Health Cover, ahm covers and other selected covers.

4 weeks free terms: Must maintain direct debit and hold eligible cover for 28 consecutive days from the policy start date to get next 4 weeks free. The 4 weeks free will not be issued if you change to an ineligible cover, terminate your cover or suspend your cover during this period.
2&6 month waits waived on extras terms: 2&6 month waiting periods on extras waived. Other waiting periods apply (including 12 months on some dental services). If you're switching from another fund and you’ve used any of your current limits (at that fund), that will count towards your annual limits with us. If you've reached your limits at your previous fund you may not be able to claim straight away on extras.

The points will not be issued if you change to an ineligible cover, terminate your cover or suspend your cover during this period.
