NO WAITING PERIODS FOR THE SAME BENEFITS

If you’ve switched from another health fund, you may not need to serve waiting periods, if:

  • your HCF cover includes the same level of benefits and services as your previous cover; and
  • you’ve served the equivalent waiting periods with your previous fund (except for hearing aids).

To avoid serving waiting periods again when switching between funds, you’ll need to have switched from another Australian registered health insurer or an international health insurer belonging to the International Federation of Health Plans, and to have joined within 1 month of ending your previous membership. These rules also apply if you’ve switched from another HCF product.

Unfortunately, when you switch funds, you can’t transfer over any loyalty rewards, including increased limits. If you joined HCF during a special offer, some waiting periods might be waived. Get in touch with us to check which waiting periods may apply. To see what waiting periods apply for different services log in to online member services to find your Product Summary under ‘Cover details’.
