What to look for in singles health insurance

By  AAMI

Health insurance: it’s probably not the first thing on your shopping list each week. But taking steps to cover yourself – especially if you get hurt, sick, or need an ambulance – lets you focus on the other things on your list (like, have I got enough loo paper?!).

You can now get AAMI Health Insurance for singles that puts you in the driver’s seat – just select the level of cover that meets your needs and budget. And remember, health insurance isn’t just for times of need, it’s also there to make the good times even better. You can kick it up a gear with a wide range of Extras Cover, so you can keep yourself in tip-top shape with a trip to the dentist, a physio session, or a new pair of glasses.

If you’re researching singles private health insurance, here are some key things to look out for.

Value for your money

Whether it’s your first health cover or health cover for a fresh start, prioritise what you need and don’t pay for what you don’t. AAMI Health Insurance’s Starter Hospital cover is a more affordable way to cover yourself for certain types of accidents, some specified hospital procedures, and unlimited emergency ambulance*.

Extras you can treat yourself to

If you’re looking for that little something-something, AAMI Health Insurance Extras covers you for a broad range of services – whether you want basic Dental, Physio and Chiro, or something more, we have you covered. For a few more bucks each week, get AAMI Starter Boost Extras cover and treat yourself to higher annual claim limits, plus major dental and natural therapies like remedial massage and acupuncture. Depending on your needs and the level of cover you choose, you can claim back between 60% - 70% of the cost on Extras (until you reach the annual limit – see the Health Insurance comparison table for the annual limits.

Easy to understand & claim

While health insurance mightn’t be top of your shopping list each week, AAMI Health Insurance can provide cover for when you might need it. You’ll find our Hospital or Extras health insurance cover easy to understand and manage, and claiming is simple! You can claim over the phone or even by uploading a photo of your receipt online.
