There had not been an increase this year, before 1 October. Qantas Health Insurance initially communicated the planned premium increase earlier this year. In response to the initial impact of COVID-19, we postponed for six months the health insurance premium changes for our Australian resident health insurance members, which were meant to have come into effect from 1 April 2020.
With the six-month deferral now ended, our annual premium changes apply to members from 1 October 2020.
Members eligible for the Australian Government Rebate, may see their new premium increase is lower compared to what we had communicated to members earlier this year.
