Pros

  • Priceline health insurance member score extra benefits to the Priceline Sister Club, including double points.
  • Priceline is underwritten by nib, one of Australia's largest health funds.
  • Sister Club members receive a pretty decent 4% discount when they direct debit their premiums.

Cons

  • Priceline doesn't offer much product variety, with just 4 hospital and 3 extras policies. This could be an advantage if you're after a no-nonsense health fund, but it could be a bit limiting if you want to customise your cover.

Priceline health insurance: Our expert verdict

Priceline health insurance is a sensible extension of the company's pharmacy product, with a simple product lineup that promises to look after all of your health care needs. Underwritten by nib, it's a no frills product, but is probably mainly good for people who already shop at Priceline pharmacies.

Priceline is good if:

  • You want a no-nonsense health insurance product with a simple product offering.
  • You regularly shop at Priceline pharmacies and can take advantage of the additional Sister Club rewards.

Priceline is not great if:

  • You don't do a lot of shopping at Priceline pharmacies, or don't have one near you.
  • You want more flexibility in your coverage.

Priceline health insurance complaints

We looked at the 2022 Ombudsman health insurance complaints to see how nib brands stacked up. Keep in mind that Priceline complaints are lumped in with a lot of other brands underwritten by nib, including Qantas, AAMI, Apia as well as nib itself

  • nib received a slightly smaller percentage of total complaints (9.40%) than its market share (9.30%).
  • nib had proportionally more complaints than several other big health funds, including HBF, Bupa and Medibank.

This chart shows the weighted volume of complaints received by each health fund, according to the Commonwealth Ombudsman. The lower the number, the better. Only non-restricted funds with a national market share of at least 0.1% are included here. nib is ninth overall in this ranking. The weighting ensures that funds are compared fairly; larger funds serve more customers so can potentially get more complaints.
