Age-based Discount

Reviewed and updated 13 April 2023

In this Guide, we explain the Age-based Discount, which is one way the Australian Government encourages younger people to take out private health insurance.

If you are under 30 and your insurer offers the Age-based Discount, you can reduce the cost of your Hospital Cover.

Depending on your age, you could receive a discount of up to 10% for 10 years.

This Guide will help you work out whether or not you are eligible for the Age-based Discount and how much you could save on the cost of Hospital Cover.
