What to look for in singles health cover

***To be covered for any necessary treatment required as a result of an accident you must provide documented proof that you have sought treatment at a hospital emergency department within 24 hours of the accident. If further treatment in hospital is needed as an admitted patient, you will need to be re-admitted to a hospital within 90 days of the initial visit. Refer to the Policy Booklet for full details.

Medicare Levy Surcharge

The Medicare Levy Surcharge (MLS) is a government tax on top of the normal Medicare Levy and impacts singles with a taxable income of over $90,000 or families (including couples and single-parents) with a taxable income of over $180,000 who don’t have an appropriate level of private hospital insurance for the full financial year. 

Holding any AAMI Health Insurance Hospital Cover product means you won’t pay the MLS if your income is above the government threshold and you maintain your hospital cover for the full financial year.

Read the AAMI Health Insurance Policy Booklet for more information.

Accidental Injury Benefit

Seek treatment at a hospital Emergency Department within 24 hours of an accident and if you need to be admitted, you'll receive benefits in line with our top hospital cover for the next 90 days.
