All set to switch? It’s simple
Switching to Teachers Health is as easy as filling out this transfer request details form when you join. It gives us the green light to get in touch with your previous fund – and do it all for you. You won’t pay any exit fees or penalties either (just make sure you’ve cancelled your direct debit with your previous fund).
You’ll be able to claim straight away if you’re transferring over to an equivalent level of cover. If your previous level of cover was lower than your new Teachers Health policy, however, there’ll be waiting periods for any services that weren’t included on that last policy.
If you’ve already cancelled your membership with another health fund, make sure you join us within 60 days to keep up your continuity of cover.
Waiting periods apply to:
- Members taking out health insurance for the first time
- Current Teachers Health members who upgrade to a higher level of cover
- Members who come over to Teachers Health from another health fund who haven’t finished the waiting periods – or are transferring to higher cover
