Couples health insurance: It could be cheaper to just pay once

Aussie couples often face sky-high health insurance premiums, especially as they get older. Because there’s two of you, it can be easy to take out a policy that covers more than either of you need – and pay through the nose for it. 

Finding the right health cover as a couple can be surprisingly affordable and save hundreds of dollars. Hospital cover, for example, can cost as low as $6.12* a day on a couples policy, which means more savings for you and your partner.

Paying too much?

Health Insurance Comparison was able to save Aussie couples an average of $285** in 2020. This number certainly adds up over the years and allows couples to put savings to where it matters for them.

Couples health insurance can provide you and your partner peace of mind, knowing that you’re covered in case of a medical emergency.

You can end up saving more depending on your life situation. For example, if you’ve got adult kids who never make a claim, it can be cheaper to downsize from a family policy.

It also makes life easier. One policy and one premium makes the health insurance policy easier to manage. 

Our specialists at Health Insurance Comparison are on-hand to understand your needs and help you find the most appropriate and cost-saving policies in your area.

So, if you come as a pair, make sure you switch to a health policy that meets both your health needs and your partners. Talk to our specialists today.
