What types of rewards do health insurers offer?

When shopping around for health insurance loyalty programs, look for:

  • Increased claims. This type of program gives you an increased benefit limit on specified services the longer you remain a member. For example, your extras cover may offer $750 dental cover in your first year of membership, but this could then increase to $1,000 in your second year, $1,500 in your third year and so on, until you reach the policy’s maximum benefit limit.
  • Cover for out-of-pocket hospital expenses. Some insurers also allow loyal members to accrue reward points that can be used to cover out-of-pocket hospital expenses.
  • Earn points. When you become a member of a health fund, you can sometimes get frequent flyer points or points through other rewards programs such as Flybuys.
  • Discounted movie and sporting tickets. If your health fund has partnerships with cinema chains or ticket providers, you can get discounted movie tickets or reduced-cost entry to sporting events.
  • Discounted gym memberships. Some funds have a special deal with a nationwide gym chain, giving you access to discounted gym memberships.
  • Discounts at partner retailers. Some funds also have relationships with retailers, allowing you to access discounts and special offers on everything from sporting goods and vitamins to theme park entry and even hotel accommodation.
  • Giveaways. Many health funds run regular member-exclusive competitions to win items such as sporting goods, electrical items and even holidays. In some cases, being a long-term member of a fund may give you an increased number of competition entries.
  • Referral bonuses. If you refer a friend and they sign up to become a member of your health fund, your insurer may reward you with a gift card.

What kind of services do these benefits typically apply to?

Where loyalty programs apply to the level of cover you are eligible to receive, they typically apply to a variety of extras cover benefits. Some of the healthcare services for which you can commonly access increased benefit loyalty rewards include:

  • General dental
  • Major dental
  • Orthodontics
  • Physiotherapy
  • Chiropractic
  • Podiatry
  • Hearing aids
  • Psychology
  • Remedial massage
  • Natural and alternative therapies

It’s also worth pointing out that the Private Health Insurance Act 2007 imposes restrictions on the value of the promotions and discounts health funds can offer to their members. These limits are designed to ensure that the principle of Community Rating is upheld, ensuring that health funds don’t discriminate against people on the basis of their health, age or any other factor.

Can I still access loyalty program benefits if I switch insurers or change my level of cover?

In most cases you'll forfeit any loyalty benefits that you've accrued with your old fund. However, some funds will recognise your years of membership with your old fund when determining your eligibility to access increased benefits as part of their own rewards programs, so check with your new fund to find out if this is possible before switching.
