Asking yourself if private health insurance is worth it? Well here’s a bunch of different ways to get more out of some of our included extras, depending on what type of cover you have.

Have you claimed for these?

Depending on your level of cover, we can help out with the bills for some (or all) of the below services. Up to your annual limit, waiting periods apply.

Exercise classes, personal training and gym memberships

If your health provider (a GP, for example) thinks it’s good for your health, we can help with your bills for exercise classes, gym memberships and personal training if you have Health Improvement Benefits included on your cover, and you’ve served your waiting period. Your health provider just needs to fill out a Health Improvement Benefit Approval Form specifying the specific health condition being managed via the exercise classes, gym memberships and/or personal training. You then send this form to us. Annual limits apply.
