Coming off the family membership is a good time for your soon-to-be ex-dependant to consider their healthcare needs and take control of their own (health insurance) destiny!

If they’d like our help with that, you can enter their details into our dependant contact form and we’ll reach out to answer any questions they may have.

Important facts

Here are three considerations for ex-dependants:

  • Waiting periods – your dependant has 60 days to get their own cover (after coming off yours) if they want to avoid re-serving waiting periods
  • Medicare Levy Surcharge – higher earners with Hospital cover avoid paying extra tax
  • Lifetime Health Cover – older ex-dependants should know about this government initiative, which encourages Australians to get Hospital cover by 1 July after their 31st birthday.
