Canstar awarded ‘Outstanding Value Insurance’ 13 years in a row
We’re proud to deliver outstanding value health insurance products designed to suit your needs. But don’t just take our word for it.
Why should I consider hospital cover?
If your annual income* is over $90,000 as a single (or $180,000 as a couple/family) and don’t have an appropriate level of hospital cover for the full tax year, you may need to pay the Medicare Levy Surcharge.
You can avoid paying this surcharge by taking out hospital cover for the full tax year.
Use our Medicare Levy Surcharge Calculator to do the maths.
*'income' for Medicare Levy Surcharge purposes.

You can even estimate your potential benefits for most extras claims, so you'll know how much you could get back before leaving the house.
Things you should know
1 To be eligible you'll have to have your own policy or a policy with your partner, you can't be a dependent on your parents' policy. If you are on a couple or family policy, the discount is calculated by taking an average of the discount applied to the adults on the hospital cover. So, if one person has a 10% discount and their partner has no discount, or 0%, the discount applied is 5% overall.
