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.
