How to switch or change your health insurance

Does your health insurance still suit your life and needs? If not, it might be time to take another look at your cover and consider a switcheroo.

Why switch?

Lifestyle changes

Have you had any major changes to your circumstances? More or less active than before? Or if your family is changing, shrinking or growing, it’s a good idea review your cover well in advance and consider whether you may need to change private health insurance providers or plans.

Need more or less annual limits?

Do the annual and lifetime limits on benefits still suit your needs? Check your limits.

Extras you use (or don’t)

How often do you use the extras you’ve currently got included in your cover? Could you get more out of cover with different extras included?

Future planning

Longer term, do you think you might end up using more hospital cover or different extras? Are you planning to have a surgery, or to use a certain type of extras inclusion, like orthodontics or laser eye surgery, for example?

Want to stay with your provider?

With ahm you’ll get the same benefit at most recognised providers. So you don’t have to switch from your physio or chiro just because you’ve switched health funds. Find your provider.

Health insurance cover options change often. We released a new extras cover that lets you pick and choose your extras inclusions, rather than go with a set group. Find out more.
