Been waiting for an offer like this since getting my $300 eftpos card from iSelect.
Things to note:
This deal is probably best for those who have PHI to avoid the Medicare Levy Surcharge. If your on a Private Insurance Cover for medical reasons, its probably not the best idea to be jumping from one fund to another
Check with your new Health Fund that they have transferred you waiting limits across within the 30 day cooling period.
I have also confirmed that all your waiting periods transfer from all your previous funds. Just make sure you either have the transfer certificates to provide to your new fund, or provide authorization to the new fund to request the transfer certificate. Now when you login to your new fund account, you will see the waiting periods from when you joined the new health fund. But this will be corrected manually when a claim is made based on all your previous transfer certificates.
You should get this in your email to confirm your eligibility if you've followed the right steps:
Congratulations! By joining a combined Hospital and Extras cover you’re now on your way to receiving a $200 eftpos gift card!
At the end of your 30 day cooling off period, we’ll send you an email with all of the details on how you can redeem your gift card.
Below is a Table that shows how much you would be paying extra in Tax if you didn't have Private Health Insurance
|Threshold||Tier 1||Tier 2||Tier 3|
|Singles||$90,000 or less||$90,001–$105,000||$105,001–$140,000||$140,001 or more|
|Families||$180,000 or less||$180,001–$210,000||$210,001–$280,000||$280,001 or more|

I've earned approx $1000 in freebies which literally has paid off my PHI costs
