Premium relief

To help ease financial pressure, we invite UniHealth members who’ve been directly impacted to apply for three months’ free cover. Premium relief is available to members who:

  1. have been a UniHealth member for the previous three months, and are paid up-to-date, when applying.

How do I apply?

Email info@unihealthinsurance.com.au with proof of your Disaster Recovery or Allowance payment and we’ll get onto it.

So we can be sure it’s you, please provide one of the following ensuring your name is clearly visible:

  • Bank statement – showing your payment
  • Services Australia letter  confirming your payment has been granted
  • Services Australia SMS – confirming payment and showing your mobile number (so we can check it matches the one we have on your membership).
