Why take out couples health insurance?
There are many reasons why having private health insurance is a good idea for couples across Australia. Being covered for common extras like optical and dental will ensure you can take care of the basics when you need to, and there’s the bonus of not having to wait through public hospital waiting lists that comes as a massive relief if either of you get into a bind.
We can think of a ‘couple’ of seriously compelling reasons why all couples around the country should think about this type of cover.
Get in early and save
As a young couple, you may not consider health insurance a huge priority, but it represents a great opportunity at your age. For one, neither of you have to pay certain penalties on your premiums until you’re over the age of 30 (see below), so now’s a great time to secure low cost coverage and claim on the things that matter to you. Get an extras policy and fix those teeth! Have an old high school injury from playing football? Utilise your cover and go see a physio.
Taking out health insurance between the two of you can also be a great way to streamline your bills, so compare policies using our website to see if you can find a great value fund.
