Is there anything I need to know about transferring from another health insurer?
There are no qualifying periods if you are accepted for membership after transferring a current membership from another Australian Registered Private Health Insurer and had an equivalent level of cover, and completed all waiting periods*.
Normal waiting periods will apply to those aspects of Navy Health cover not covered previously by your previous insurer, and for those items specifically nominated within the products as requiring extended waiting periods. Waiting periods will also apply if you join Navy Health after 30 days from leaving your previous health insurer.
Navy Health will not pay immediate benefits at a higher level than those provided by the previous insurer. Navy Health annual limits will be reduced by the amount of benefit already paid by the previous insurer for similar services in the current benefit year of transfer. The Clearance Certificate Application may assist you with your transfer to Navy Health.
*Please note: waiting periods will apply if joining Navy Health after 30 days from leaving your previous health insurer.
