Young Couples Health Insurance


Young couples health insurance

When you’re sharing your life with someone, it’s important to look to the future. While for many young couples this might mean saving for a holiday, an apartment or even a house together, or perhaps considering starting a family, one priority that often gets overlooked is your health.  At this stage in your life, you’re still enjoying each other’s company and it might not seem like health insurance is particularly pertinent, but it’s always better to be safe than sorry. By investing in private healthcare, you and your partner can make the most of your time together and plan for other events on the horizon, safe in the knowledge that you’ll have  protection if either of you suffers an injury or falls ill.


The Right Time Is Now

If you’ve ever wondered if health insurance might be beneficial for you, can help you to make the right choice. They’ve created a brand new interactive health insurance campaign that aims to help Australians make informed decisions about private healthcare. The great thing about the campaign is that it focuses on five major life stages, in an effort to deliver concise and comprehensive information that talks to your specific lifestyle, health needs, and overall priorities. The Young Couples life stage discusses both hospital and extras cover; the former is particularly important if you and your partner are considering having children in the near future, and the latter is an amazing financial safety net for general and everyday health. The campaign also provides detailed information on the differences between private and public healthcare, and offers great insight on why it’s so important to purchase health insurance at this stage of your life before the Lifetime Health Cover (LHC) loading applies on top of your premium.


Switch It Up!

Don’t forget that health insurance is a widely growing market, which means there’s always a huge range of policies available to suit you and your partner. If you find that your health needs are changing over time, it’s a good idea to regularly shop around and see what other policies there are that might suit your current lifestyle better.
