About pre-existing conditions

What if I have a pre-existing condition?

If you're a new member, you'll have to wait 12 months before you can receive benefits for items or services related to a pre-existing condition.

If you're changing to a higher level of cover (either within Medibank or from another fund), you may have to wait 12 months to receive the higher benefits, including benefits for services not previously covered.
