No Hospital excess for kids 

One less worry with no Hospital excess for kids on all family covers.5

Looking to keep your kids on a family cover?

We've increased the maximum age for Dependants from 24 to 30. This means eligible Dependants could stay on your eligible residential family policy until they turn 31, provided they are not married or living in a de facto relationship. For the first Dependant aged 21 and over there is an additional loading fee, unless they are studying full time at an Australian Educational Institution.6

If your Dependant is between the ages of 18-29, don't forget to consider the ongoing benefits of the Young Adult Discount which is available to them when they take out their own eligible Hospital cover.7

Every family is different. Get in touch to see what is best for you and your Dependants.

7To be eligible for the Young Adult Discount, a Young Adult must have their own residential hospital policy or a residential hospital policy with their partner. They cannot be a dependent on their parents' policy.

We'll pay a benefit up to an annual limit per membership towards any admission fee ("facility fee") charged by the Private Hospital for patients attending a Private Accident and Emergency Department.
