We’re lucky in Australia – our healthcare system has most accidents covered. But sometimes the costs don’t stop when you leave hospital.
Our Cash Back Cover* from our Recover Cover range of recovery and life insurance products gives you cash to help with the costs of recovery you weren’t expecting like taxis to the doctor, extra rehab, hospital parking, babysitters or help if you need time off work.
Cash Back Cover is designed by HCF as part of our unique range of flexible life cover options designed to help with the unexpected costs that come with recovery.

How do premiums work for Cashback Cover?
Your Cash Back Cover premium is based on the level of cover you choose (Single or Family). It doesn’t increase with age.
From time to time, we may change the Cashback Cover premium for all policyholders to allow us to cover rising claims costs and better support our members’ needs. You’ll be notified at least 30 days in advance if your premium will change.
