You will probably be surprised to learn that, on average, couples actually claim more than families with kids. This is mostly because a high proportion of couples are older people whose healthcare costs are generally higher than younger people, and also because kids generally have lower healthcare costs and do not need to claim as much.
All health funds are covered by Government legislation that says we have to charge everyone the same amount (for the same level of cover) – regardless of their age, health status or claims history. It is called Community Rating, and we think it is pretty fair to keep health cover more affordable for most people.
We get this one a lot, but unfortunately Government says no. Private Health Insurance legislation says that health funds are not allowed to offer no-claim bonuses.
This is another thing that is controlled by Government legislation. We are only allowed to pay benefits for products and services that treat a specific medical condition. If you have a medical condition and there is something you think you might be able to claim for, contact us and we will see what we can do.
