What does Choosewell do?
With today’s health insurance policies being more closely designed to reflect the needs of their target markets, the current choice of products has never been greater. For consumers, that means the opportunity to find a policy that more closely matches their needs, but it also means a much larger pool of policies to compare.
And comparing policies online yourself can be a hugely time-consuming process, so the role that Choosewell performs is that of doing all the legwork for you. It employs a team of highly experienced advisers who ask you what benefits you require and then review hundreds of policy options from a variety of funds to find the best cover at the right price.
Which health funds can it compare?
Choosewell works with a range of Australian health insurance providers, each offering quality products, great service and competitive prices. The advisers can compare policies from many well-known health funds including ahm, Australian Unity, Budget Direct, GMHBA, HCF, myown, NIB and Peoplecare.
How much does the service cost?
The service offered by Choosewell is 100% free. The advisers don't charge you for walking you through the policies, but instead collects a finder’s fee from the insurer whose policy you choose. There is no obligation to buy a policy.
What other services does Choosewell provide?
As well as providing a general health insurance comparison and advisory service, Choosewell also specialises in helping overseas visitors obtain the right health cover during their stay in Australia.
Overseas visitors are not normally covered by Medicare and those here for work, taking an extended holiday or applying for residency must have a certain level of health cover in place to satisfy their visa requirements.
How can I be sure it's safe?
Choosewell offers two guarantees to its customers:
- Service Guarantee – if you change your mind and wish to cancel your policy within 30 days of its commencement, you will be eligible for an unconditional refund, as long as you haven’t already made a claim.
- Best Price Guarantee – there are no mark-ups and the price you are quoted through Choosewell is the same price you would receive if you were to go direct to the health fund yourself.
