Things to remember when comparing health insurance offers

While it's great to get a deal when signing up to a new health insurance policy, the most important thing is that you get the right cover for your needs. Don't be tempted to sign up with a provider or policy that isn't right for you just because it has a great discount. Here are a few key things to keep in mind when comparing health insurance offers.


  • Make sure the policy you've picked is right for you and your needs.
  • Be sure that you can pay your premiums after any free period.
  • Remember to consider the ongoing member benefits of any health insurance brand that you're considering.

Do not's:

  • Don't buy a policy that doesn't suit your needs just because there's a great sign-up offer.
  • Make sure you check out the terms and conditions. For example, most sign-up offers require you to be a new customer to that provider.

Common types of health insurance sign-up deals

Health insurance sign-up deals change each month, but there are a few common types of offers you're likely to see.

Free tag

Free cover period

One of the most common sign-up offers you'll see in health insurance is a number of weeks of free coverage. The amount of time is normally between 2 and 6 weeks. You'll sometimes need to be signed up for a minimum period of time (3 months, for example) before entering your free coverage period.


Waived waiting periods

Many providers will offer to waive some waiting periods on new policies, so that you can claim right away. This is especially common on extras policies. Most offers will waive 2 and 6 month waiting periods.


Bonus frequent flyer points

Health insurance providers associated with airline brands will offer bonus frequent flyer points for new sign-ups. To claim the full bonus you'll generally need to be on a high level of cover for a minimum number of months. Lower levels of cover will often give you a smaller number of points.

Health insurance member benefits

Sign-up deals are all well and good, but many health insurance brands all offer a range of ongoing member benefits and rewards, which you should be aware of. Here are some of the current health insurance offers available from Finder partners:
