Will I have to serve a Waiting Period if I am switching from another health fund?

We recognise the Waiting Periods you have already served on your Previous Cover as at the date of transfer. Waiting Periods will apply only to higher Benefits, to services not previously covered or where a Customer has not fully served Waiting Periods on the Previous Cover (the balance of the Waiting Period will apply with us). For services already covered at an equivalent level, no Waiting Period will apply. If you have used part or all of your annual benefits under your Previous Cover, we will adjust your available new benefits accordingly. When switching funds, there must be a gap of no more than 59 days between terminating your Previous Cover and joining us to maintain continuity of cover and avoid having to re-serve Waiting Periods. For more information please refer to our Policy Booklet.
