Supporting your family
Planning a baby? We’re here to help you every step of the way, by providing:
- Cover options that work for parents-to-be and families, from basic to comprehensive.
- Flexibility to use your extras limit on the services you need most through our new My Family cover options.
- Access to a range of programs and services to support you and your loved ones.
- Information on health and healthcare for pregnancy, birth and beyond.
If you want to go private for the birth of your baby, your hospital cover needs to include ‘pregnancy and birth-related services’ at least 12 months beforehand. That way hospital services, like any pregnancy complications, the birth and your postnatal care, will be covered.
But it’s not all about babies. The cover packages below are designed to meet your ongoing needs, through hospital cover and a wide range of extras services and treatments to support you and your growing family.
