Biggest Health Cover deal returns as premiums set to rise

9Saver’s biggest Private Health Insurance offer since it launched in 2017 has returned, as the Government confirms another premium increase is coming in April.

9Saver wants to kick off the new year with the return of its biggest-ever health insurance deal, which launches as millions of Aussies start the new decade with a focus on their health and wellbeing.

Thanks to the buying power of its 190,000-plus members to date, 9Saver has unlocked an exclusive group offer from leading insurer Bupa.

For a limited time, 9Saver members who take up selected new Hospital and Extras policies with Bupa will receive the following.

9Saver Campaigner Joel Gibson says now is the perfect time to give your cover a check-up, especially those with new year’s resolutions relating to their finances and their health.

“This offer from Bupa could save Aussie families hundreds of dollars on their annual premiums in 2020,” he said.

“Those who have a new year’s resolution to manage their money better and are also in need of a new pair of glasses or prescription sunglasses could benefit from this offer by joining or switching to Bupa on a combined cover with Extras,” he said.

For those with a goal to lose weight in 2020, some health funds offer rebates to patients who consult a registered dietitian, as well as discounts on gym memberships and weight loss programs.

“Switch to this deal and you’ll get access to Bupa Plus which means you’re eligible for gym offers and discounts from organisations like Weight Watchers, Blackmores and the CSIRO’s Total Wellbeing Diet,” said Gibson.

9Saver also advises consumers to shop around for better value health insurance ahead of the April 1 price rise when premiums will increase by an average of 2.92%.

“This is the 19th year in a row, so even a smaller increase such as 2.92% could really hurt some families. This special group deal is one way to ensure you can keep the peace of mind of private health without breaking the bank,” said Gibson.

It is cost and obligation free to join 9Saver and free to receive a health insurance quote.
