Your recommendation: Hospital and extras

Based on your answers, it looks like you should consider both hospital cover and extras cover.

Since you’ll be aged 31 or older on 30 June, the longer you wait to get private health insurance - the more you'll be charged. This is thanks to a government initiative called Lifetime Health Cover loading.

This means that when you do decide to take out hospital cover, you’ll be charged an additional 2% for your premiums for each year you are over 30, up to a maximum of 70%.

You've also selected some services (such as dental, physio or optical) that would be covered by most extras - so you could save some cash.
