About Private Health Insurance

What's Hospital Cover?

Hospital cover gives you the choice and comfort that the public system can’t by helping to cover your costs when you are admitted to a private hospital.

Private Hospital insurance can help you:

  • Avoid public system waiting lists
  • Stay in a private room, when available
  • Decide where you’ll be treated
  • Choose your specialists
  • Choose the timing of your treatment

What's Extras Cover?

Extras cover reduces your out-of-pocket costs for health services that generally aren’t covered by Medicare:

  • Dental
  • Optical
  • Pharmacy
  • Physiotherapy
  • Chiropractic
  • Massage

How can Health Insurance help me save?

The Government Lifetime Health Cover loading (LHC) adds 2% to your premium for every year you are aged over 30 and don’t have Hospital cover – up to a maximum of 70%.

For full details see Lifetime Health Cover

If you earn over $90,000 a year, you might need to pay the Medicare Levy Surcharge, an additional levy the government charges on top of the standard levy paid by most Australians to fund Medicare. Having Private Hospital cover means you could save every year.
