Thousands of Medibank and ahm customers on JobKeeper or JobSeeker have already accessed a 50% waiver on their premiums for up to 6 months, saving them on average around $800.
Medibank and ahm are providing further hardship support to customers impacted financially by the pandemic lockdown in areas that have been declared a state of disaster due to COVID-19, which right now is Victoria.
The Live Better program is encouraging Australians to get active, eat healthy and practice mindfulness as it celebrates its 1-year anniversary with half a million healthy interactions through its online content, activities, and rewards program.
Medibank and ahm customers in severe financial distress are able to access a 50% discount on their premiums for up to 6 months, or further suspend their policy for up to 3 months as part of a $180 million assistance package.
ahm customers will have any unused extras annual limits rolled over into the following year for services such as dental, psychology and physio, as a result of not being able to use some of their health services during the COVID-19 lockdown.
Medibank is throwing its support behind small businesses in the health and wellbeing space with its Live Better at Home Champions program.
