Does my HIF policy cover me outside of Australia?

Unfortunately, no. Australian registered health funds are only permitted to cover services provided in Australia, therefore you will need to take out a separate international travel insurance policy*.  

We've partnered with emergency medical assistance provider, Allianz Global Assistance, to ensure you have the support and care you need. If you need help while travelling, Australian-based case managers are here for you 24/7, with registered nurses and doctors available*. If you'd like to get a quote, simply visit our travel insurance page here

Alternatively, if you'd prefer to speak to a consultant, please give us a call on 1300 313 302.

* Terms, conditions, limits and exclusions apply. Please refer to the Product Disclosure Statement for full details. The TMD is available here. You don't have cover under this benefit while travelling in Australia.
