When do health insurance premiums change?
Premiums traditionally change on 1 April each year. But in recent years, some health funds have delayed or
even cancelled premium changes to accommodate for socioeconomic factors like the COVID pandemic. HBF was the
only major health fund to cancel the 2020 premium increase, when other funds deferred.
If your premium is changing, it will change on 1 April 2023.
At HBF, you can pre-pay before 1 April to 'lock in' the 2022 rate. Get the details about this and more on our
