What Our Customers Say About Freedom Health Insurance
Switch health insurance FAQs
What are the benefits of switching health insurance providers?
There are many reasons why you might consider switching health insurers, including:
You could get a better deal - Whether your health insurance provider is increasing its premiums or you’ve done some research and found better insurance cover for your money elsewhere, switching to a deal better suited to you is a common reason to change health insurers.
You could receive better service - There’s nothing worse than poor communication with your health insurerance company or feeling frustrated and underwhelmed by the level of service provided. Here at Freedom Health Insurance, our customers are at the heart of everything we do and, whenever you submit a claim, you’ll usually deal with the same member of the team for a more personal, tailored service.
You could get better health care cover - After doing some research or consulting with a broker, you might find a health care plan with a price similar to your current one which offers more cover. Having a more comprehensive health insurance plan gives you peace of mind knowing you’ll receive the financial support you need for medical treatment should you require it.
Can I switch health insurance?
Yes, you can switch your health insurance as long as you don't have any ongoing claims. However, once these are finalised, you may be able to switch to a different provider. No matter what your reasons are for deciding to switch health insurance providers, you are within your rights to change providers should you wish to.
Can you switch health insurance at any time?
Yes, you can change health insurance companies at any time during the policy’s term, however, it may make more sense to do this at the end of the policy year to avoid missing out on payments you have already agreed to pay in your current contract.
What to consider before you switch health insurance providers
Here’s a few things to consider before switching health insurers:
Make sure you’ve done your research to find the best health insurance provider for your specific medical needs. Seeking advice from a broker can help you make a more informed decision.
If you’re looking to save money with a better deal, make sure you won't be missing out on any cover that your current policy includes.
Look out for any excluded treatments or conditions in the new health insurance plan - not all providers will offer the same level of cover.
