About Lifetime Health Cover (LHC)

What happens if I change health funds?

If you switch to us from another fund we recommend you keep your cover with your old fund until the date you transfer to us. This way you will have continuous cover which if you hold hospital cover, means you can avoid paying the Medicare Levy Surcharge and also avoid using up any of the 1,094 permitted days you can be without hospital cover during your lifetime. Also, if you already have an LHC loading, it will move with you.
