Kids left home? Here’s how you could be saving big on your health insurance
This is the health insurance check up you need to start saving on your premiums...
When your kids leave home you can get some of the biggest savings on your health insurance. Some funds and policies will simply suit your lifestyle better, and adjusting your cover or switching your provider can help you make big savings. Besides cutting out cover for your kids, you should make sure you’re covered for the conditions you’ll face as you grow older.
- Ambulance cover is an easy one. Residents of Victoria face a $1,174 callout fee if they’re not covered, and fees vary across states (except the lucky folks in QLD and TAS who get this for free).
- The most commonly claimed extras for older Aussies are Dental, Physiotherapy and Chiropractic Services so these might be worth investing in. It’s also a good time to make sure you’re not still forking out for cover you haven’t used in years like Pregnancy or Orthodontics. It does happen!
- It’s also a good idea to consider hospital cover if you want shorter waiting times on elective procedures that could significantly improve your quality of life.Think the hip replacements and knee surgeries that will get you up and moving again.

Health insurance premiums rose by a staggering 4.8% in April this year, a rise that continued a streak of constant increases since 2010. But not all insurers will pass on these costs in the same way, and you can often find a better deal by shopping around – in fact, our customers saved an average of $375.44 on their yearly premium last March.
