Do I need to change my cover now that I'm a Permanent Australian Resident?

If you've recently become an Australia permanent resident, congratulations! You're now eligible for full Medicare benefits (so yes - you'll need to change your overseas visitor’s policy to a domestic policy).

At HIF, we have five great hospital policies to choose from, to find a cover that suits your needs and budget, please visit our hospital comparison table

Then, to change your level of cover, simply; 

  1. Complete a variation form online. 
  2. Complete a Federal Government Rebate form
  3. Obtain a Medicare Eligibility Letter from Medicare (this is to ensure you're not charged any Lifetime Health Cover Loading)
  4. Email all three documents to hello@hif.com.au

We'll then notify you as soon as your variation request has been processed.
