Family Cover FAQs

With any type of private health insurance when it comes to choosing the best cover there are many factors to consider, such as your lifestyle, budget, age of children and what matters most to you.

The age of your children is also important as most health insurance providers will cover for children under a family policy until the age of 21. If your child turns 21 and is studying full time they can register as a student dependent and remain on your policy till the age of 25.


Whether you’re a family of 2 or 5, the amount you pay won’t change. The cost is determined by the level of cover and extras you choose.

If you’re looking for specific inclusions, such as pregnancy, they may only be found on certain levels of cover which will influence your decision and the amount you pay.

Private health insurance can be a valuable investment for any family. It means peace of mind for the health and wellbeing of your brood.

Hospital cover gives you a choice of specialist and may reduce wait times for treatments in a private hospital. And with extras cover  you can maintain your family’s dental and eye health with the ability to reduce your out of pocket costs.
