As the only health fund created exclusively for doctors, we understand the dedication and commitment required to get to this stage. The transition from being a medical student to an intern is undoubtedly a very exciting period for young medical professionals and a major step forward in their career. It involves a very steep learning curve and the constant demands of a high-pressure work environment and long hours.
We believe it’s important that their most valuable asset – their health – is protected, especially since they will now be earning an income and can no longer be covered by their parent(s) policy.
We try to ensure that choosing the right health cover is as uncomplicated as possible. We do this by proactively supporting the newest members of the medical profession through regular intern events and entry-level products for a smooth transition onto their own cover.
We know that the health system and private health insurance is complex. So we organise and participate in regular intern events, where we focus on informing new doctors about health insurance as they prepare to make the switch to their own policy. We attended many intern orientation events nation-wide in January to support our young doctors in this key stage of their career.
We offer affordable cover to suit their specific needs. Smart Starter is designed for the fit, young and healthy, not planning a family, and provides entry-level hospital cover with some exclusions and benefit restrictions. While Basic Extras offers cover that includes general dental, optical, physio and more.
