Going overseas?

You may suspend your cover if all those listed under your policy travel overseas for a minimum of one month. It is important that you notify us of your situation prior to departing and ensure that your premium payments are made up to the day prior to departing.

One of the following proof of travel documents may be required:

  • itinerary
  • boarding pass
  • ticket

To avoid additional waiting periods, your membership should be reactivated within one month of returning. Please note that benefits are not payable for treatment received during the period of suspension.

By suspending your membership, you may be affected by the Medicare Levy Surcharge (MLS). We recommend that you speak with your accountant, financial advisor or the Australian Tax Office about how the MLS could affect you.
