Couples Hospital cover

If you need to go to hospital, having Hospital cover can help you avoid public wait lists and be treated where you want to, by a specialist you know and trust.

We do our best to help our members with Hospital cover avoid, or minimise, out-of-pocket expenses for doctors’ costs and hospital bills. We believe in sharing as much useful information as possible to help answer questions ahead of a hospital visit. 

See Hospital cover options

Couples Extras cover

Extras cover can help with everyday health expenses like dental, optical, physio and chiro. We also pay a Natural Therapies benefit for things like a remedial massage or acupuncture session. 

Our Extras cover includes a Healthy Lifestyle benefit that you can use towards the cost of a service to help improve a health condition. This could be a gym membership, personal training sessions, or an online weight management program^.

Couples health cover FAQs

Can I add my partner to my existing policy?

Yes, you can add a partner to family cover (but not singles cover as that’s designed for one person).

If you’re currently on single or single parent cover, you’ll need to move onto a couple or family membership (whichever is relevant to you). See more on adding a partner to your membership

Is couples’ health insurance cheaper?

Family cover is designed for two people in a relationship, plus any dependants. So, while it can cost more than singles cover, it covers more people!

In general, we keep premiums as low as we can. Our average annual premium increase for 2024 was 2.65% – below the industry average of 3.03%.

Do we have to be married for couples’ insurance?

No, family cover is designed for married and de facto relationships (and dependants!).
