Singles Cover FAQs

 

Should I have private health insurance?

Private health insurance is a great way to get peace of mind and have more control of your health care. With singles health cover you can live healthier and be rewarded for it, while reducing the risk of bill shock should you end up in the emergency room.

Having extras cover means you can pay less to feel your best with money back on a range of essentials such as dental and optometry, as well as other therapies including physio and chiro. And with more back in your pocket you can make the most of these services more often and find other ways to use the savings.

You should also consider that the cover Medicare provides is limited. When it comes to things like elective surgery or sports injuries, private health insurance can help with the costs as well as comfort with your choice of doctor and speedier treatment times.

If you’re under 30 and have private health insurance you’ll also avoid having lifetime health cover loading applied to your cover, another way to save more in the long run.

What is the best private health insurance for singles?

Private health insurance is a personal choice and choosing the right cover will depend on your personal needs and priorities.

Whether you’re an extreme sports person or prefer to keep two feet on the ground, you can choose a cover that gives you the peace of mind you need to live a healthy and happy life.

With options such as AIA Vitality, you can be rewarded where it matters by earning points when you move. As a member you can use your points to unlock exclusive shopping rewards and access discounted gym memberships and stay motivated.

You can compare health covers online or chat with us directly for advice on what cover is right for you.

When can I get private health insurance?

When you choose to get private health insurance is up to you but it’s important to understand that once you become independent from your parents, you’ll need your own cover.

For some that means turning 21 and starting your first full time job while for others it may mean finishing your degree and moving out of home. You should always plan ahead and organize your cover before reaching these milestones if you want to avoid waiting periods.

You’re considered dependent at the age of 21 unless you decide to study full time, in which case you can remain a dependent until the age of 25. Signing up sooner rather than later could also allow you access to the Under 30’s discount bundles.

How much is private health insurance for a single person?

The cost of your health insurance is dependent on the type of cover you decide to go with and the age you are when you sign up.

The benefit of choosing from a range of covers is that you can pick the policy that works to your budget. For mid level extras cover that could mean swapping out two coffees a week, and for Basic Hospital it could be the same as your weekly gym membership.

Comparing covers is always the best starting point and will give you an idea of what each type of cover is worth.
