Your 2020 overseas visitor health cover premium

Due to the difficult circumstances caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we postponed this year’s premium increase for six months. Premiums are now set to change on 1 October 2020. We’ll help you understand the changes to your premium, as well as the support that is available to you during this time.

Reasons to keep your health cover

At Medibank, we’re investing in initiatives that will give you plenty of value from your cover and support you when you need it most. Our 24/7 Medibank Nurse and Medibank Mental Health Phone Support lines are available for all members with hospital cover. Due to higher demand for these services we are increasing the number of our health experts.
