Health cover for your family

If you’re looking for private health insurance for your family, first consider your needs, lifestyle and budget. We understand that families can grow and priorities can change, which means you can reassess your policy as needed and make sure that it’s right for you – both now and into the future.

  • Pregnancy

    These days, having a baby can be an expensive and sometimes complicated time. With the right health cover, you’ll feel more confident making choices about what the best care and treatment options are for you.


  • Simplicity

    Keeping track of your health insurance together as a family is a smart way to streamline the paperwork and everyday expenses. AAMI Health Insurance can help you easily switch from another fund** and will honour applicable waiting periods served (for equivalent services only) with an existing fund. We’ll also handle the paperwork.


  • Tax Smart

    Don’t be caught short at tax time because you’ve delayed getting private hospital insurance. If your combined annual income is over $180,000, you’ll be paying a surcharge to the government unless you have private hospital cover and maintain it for the full financial year.

**Make sure you read your Policy Booklet for full details and requirements of switching from another insurer.
