Can I get health insurance just for my child?

Yes, you can. With HBF, you can get health cover just for your child so long as you meet certain eligibility criteria. To find out more, please contact us.

When does my child need to come off my cover?

We will cover your kids on your policy until they turn 25, provided they’re not married or in a de-facto relationship and are studying fulltime or earning less than $24,500 per year.

Is there maternity cover with no waiting periods?

No. Most health funds, including HBF, have a 12-month waiting period for maternity cover. This helps stop people from signing up for health cover, claiming and leaving, which drives up premiums for the health fund’s other members.
