Compare Single Parent Health Insurance


When the unexpected occurs, it’s best to have a suitable single parent health insurance option to support you and your family. Many funds offer arrangements that cater specifically to single parents. Taking some time to compare health insurance for single-parent families can make sure health cover isn’t a strain on your family budget.

Consider your needs

There are several things to consider when you compare health insurance for single parent families among Australian health funds. Not only is your own lifestyle and health situation important, but your child’s needs will also change significantly over time. That’s why it’s important to ensure that you adjust your cover every few years to take into account needs like dental and optical. And if they have any special needs you’ll need to ensure that the correct cover is chosen to provide optimum care and peace of mind.


When you compare health insurance for a single mother or father, you can still combine Hospital and Extras cover through the same fund or you can separate them between different funds. Taking this ‘mix and match’ approach provides you with more flexibility to tailor a package to your particular needs.

Government Rebate

In order to minimise the financial burden of private health insurance, the Australian government offers a rebate on private health cover premiums, including single parent insurance, for policyholders who are also eligible for Medicare. This is based on your household outcome and the age of the oldest person covered by your policy – probably you, the parent. Most members receive the rebate upfront by registering when they take up private single parent insurance, otherwise it can be applied when submitting a tax return. Find out more.

Lifetime Health Cover

Lifetime Health Cover is an Australian Government initiative to ease the strain on Medicare by encouraging taxpayers over the age of 30 to take out private health cover. Taxpayers who do not take up private health cover by the 1st of July after their 31st birthday will have to pay an increased premium should they ever take up private health insurance in the future. The cost goes up 2% every year and is payable for your first 10 years of membership so it pays not to delay. Find out more.
