If you have kids and currently only have individual health insurance, you can opt to get private health cover to look after the whole family.

Family health insurance helps to ensure that your loved ones get the appropriate medical treatment and care needed.

Now is the time to conduct a private health insurance comparison with changes to health cover taking effect from April 1.

The new changes will see the health insurance premiums increase by an average 5.6 per cent, so it's a good time to look around now and compare health insurance so that you are set up with the appropriate plan that meets your medical and budget requirements.

You don't have to worry about rigid health cover plans with the ability to mix and match your private health insurance benefits with HICA.

Your hospital cover and extras cover doesn't have to be from the same health fund. Separating these two policies will give you a broader range of options to choose from.

Getting set up with health insurance doesn't have to be a complicated process, as your HICA health consultant can help you in comparing health insurance policies so that your family is matched up with the plan that is most appropriate to your needs.
