How do I add my partner to my membership?
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).
Before making any changes, you can get a quote for your new cover.
Please also consider the following:
- Lifetime Health Cover – will your partner have a loading? If so, how will this affect your premium?
- Private Health Insurance Rebate – will their income change your rebate tier?
- Waiting periods – if your partner hasn’t had health cover before – or it’s more than 60 days since their previous cover ended – Hospital and/or Extras waiting periods will apply (for them).
