Can I get travel insurance that covers my pregnancy?

Can I get travel insurance that covers my pregnancy?

Yes, you can purchase our travel insurance that will provide you with cover for up to your 26th week of pregnancy. However, please note the following important points:

1.     If you are aware of the pregnancy at the time of issue of the policy, an online medical assessment must be completed if either of the following apply:

·       there have been complications with this or any previous pregnancy;

·       you are having a multiple pregnancy (e.g. twins or triplets); or

·       the conception was medically assisted (including hormone therapies and IVF).

You can complete an assessment by either visiting your nearest Medibank store, online at medibank.com.au/travel or by calling 134 190.

2.     Cover is only provided for unexpected serious pregnancy complications which occur before the

26th week of pregnancy.

3.     No cover is provided for childbirth or the health of a newborn child, irrespective of the stage of pregnancy at which the child is born.

Expectant mothers should therefore consider whether they travel and buy this policy, particularly if travelling beyond the 20th week of pregnancy.
