Australians with private health cover need to know this

Save hundreds on your health cover

Countdown To June 30: Saving Hundreds On Your Health Cover

After this year’s April 1st premium rise, the average Australian family is now paying another $122 a year for the same level of health cover. At the same time, people who used our free comparison service found policies that were an average of $362.38 cheaper than what they paid the year before.

At Health Insurance Comparison, not only can you save money off your premium, you can also chat to our in-house experts about the services you actually use and ensure that you are on a policy that suits your needs.

A vital part of what we do is listen to your questions, and provide you with the information you need to save. For example, we find that a lot of people don’t realise that there are no lock-in contracts with health insurance. Just knowing that the industry is actually designed to make it easy to move to a better deal makes it far easier to save.

To start, it’s simple to compare your cover. When it comes to changing funds you’re entitled to keep the waiting periods you’ve already served, along with a refund of any premiums you’ve paid in advance.

Here’s how you do it:

Step 1: Select your current life stage below.

Step 2: Once you select your preferred coverage options, you will have the opportunity to compare quotes from multiple health funds.

Current life stage

We know how difficult it can be to make sense of the huge range of health insurance policies that are available. Part of our service is our commitment to making your health cover savings quick, simple and effective. We give you all the tools you need to make affordable health cover a reality.

When our customers come to us they get more than a comparison. They also benefit from our advisers’ years of expertise in comparing health funds. They know of the traps Aussies often fall into, including paying for services they’re unlikely to use at different stages in their life.

We know that you might be worried about having to re-serve waiting periods or about what you could lose by switching. But the reality is: you don’t have to re-serve waiting periods unless you’re upgrading your cover, and it’s actually far easier than you think to pay less and get more.

With the help of our advisers it’s never been easier to understand what you’re paying and why. You can compare your current level of cover to similar policies and see exactly what you could be saving.

Since launching, thousands of happy Aussies have already jumped on board. Over half a million Aussies chose to help them compare health cover last year, citing saving money as their number one reason for using the site.

This time last year Aussies saved an average of $362.38 off their yearly premium. You can join them with just a few clicks. Hurry! Your health cover savings are just minutes away.
