Who is myOwn?
myOwn is a new health insurance brand, launched in Australia on 31 July 2017. The result of a partnership between life insurer AIA Australia, not-for-profit health fund GMHBA, myOwn is a unique product in Australia's health insurance market.
What health insurance options are available?
You can choose from 7 levels of cover:
Basic. This policy includes the minimum cover required to be labeled a basic policy, which is restricted cover on rehabilitation, psychology and palliative care.
Bronze. This policy includes the cover for the 18 clinical categories required to be labeled a bronze policy, including cancer treatment, digestive issues and joint reconstructions.
Bronze Plus. This offers everything the Bronze policy does plus additional cover like dental surgery, medically necessary plastic surgery and lung/chest issues.
Silver. This policy includes the cover for the 26 clinical categories required to be labeled a silver policy, including cover for heart treatments and hearing implants.
Silver Plus. This covers everything the Silver policy does plus a few more like cataracts and kidney dialysis.
Silver Plus Enhanced. This covers everything the Silver Plus policy does plus even more like pregnancy, sleep studies, weight loss surgery and assisted reproductive services like IVF.

Important information about this website
finder.com.au is one of Australia's leading comparison websites. We compare from a wide set of major banks, insurers and product issuers.
finder.com.au has access to track details from the product issuers listed on our sites. Although we provide information on the products offered by a wide range of issuers, we don't cover every available product. You should consider whether the products featured on our site are appropriate for your needs and seek independent advice if you have any questions.
Products marked as 'Promoted' or "Advertisement" are prominently displayed either as a result of a commercial advertising arrangement or to highlight a particular product, provider or feature. Finder may receive remuneration from the Provider if you click on the related link, purchase or enquire about the product. Finder's decision to show a 'promoted' product is neither a recommendation that the product is appropriate for you nor an indication that the product is the best in its category. We encourage you to use the tools and information we provide to compare your options and find the best option for you.
The identification of a group of products, as 'Top' or 'Best' is a reflection of user preferences based on current website data. On a regular basis, analytics drive the creation of a list of popular products. Where these products are grouped, they appear in no particular order.
Where our site links to particular products or displays 'Go to site' buttons, we may receive a commission, referral fee or payment.
We try to take an open and transparent approach and provide a broad based comparison service. However, you should be aware that while we are an independently owned service, our comparison service does not include all providers or all products available in the market.
Some product issuers may provide products or offer services through multiple brands, associated companies or different labelling arrangements. This can make it difficult for consumers to compare alternatives or identify the companies behind the products. However, we aim to provide information to enable consumers to understand these issues.
Providing or obtaining an estimated insurance quote through us does not guarantee you can get the insurance. Acceptance by insurance companies is based on things like occupation, health and lifestyle. By providing you with the ability to apply for a credit card or loan we are not guaranteeing that your application will be approved. Your application for credit products is subject to the Provider's terms and conditions as well as their application and lending criteria.
