    And they have just emailed an increase in Monthly fees for existing members.
    Maybe they could help existing members by cutting their marketing budget and discounts for signing up new members to reduce costs?
    It's the churn and burn philosophy.

      All health funds well have an increase on 1st of nov but I do agree without discounts for current members, its all falls onto churn and burn method for rewards.

  • is it the same offer for Co-operate customer as well?

    "Must maintain cover for 13 consecutive months, read more below"

    Way too long for health insurance.. max stay for 6 months time

    • Yep, what i understood was 6 weeks after 30 days and then 4 weeks after 13 month. so technically you can get 6 weeks then leave after but I cant be sure and would need to check with qantas first. But otherwise good deal if your planning to stay for more then 13 month.

      • Yeh ill be jumping on this next.
        Got 2 weeks left on doctors health offer (8 weeks free, $100 Gift Card, $600 optical, 100% Dental) which im paying $200 per month premium for 2 months to get those.

        10 weeks for the price of 4 is good.

        In total i would get 14 weeks free by end of december and then churn to another PHI with limits reset 1 Jan or may stay with Bupa for 2 days after 1 Jan for Optical $450

        Averaging $100 per month for PHI Hopsital/extra top cover so far this year

  • Wait so continuously moving to other providers to get the free weeks has no downside and can keep changing every 2 months or so adding up to a year to unlock the major dental for examples ending up paying for 6 months and 6 months free?
    If so has anyone made a list of the gold an 100% coverage of all dental and which prociders to change to

    • Doctors health have 100% on top cover
      Bupa have 100% with approved providers, otherwise 75% on top cover

      • Yeah medibank have gold cover aswell.
        Looking for a family one with 2 parents and 2 children

    • Michael, in fact I just left BUPA and they offered me 12 weeks free if I come back with WELCOMEBACK12 (targeted). No 12 month exclusion period like this offer has.

      Definitely no downside to switching.
      All your waiting periods remain as they were and 2+ 6 month are always waived anyway.

      • Eligible Customers will receive from Bupa HI Pty Ltd ABN 81 000 057 590 (Bupa) 12 weeks free health insurance, plus 2- and 6-month waiting periods waived on Extras, on the following terms and conditions.

    • Went to my dentist today and Doctors Health covered the whole $330 bill (OPG, 2 xray, examination, scale and clean, fluride, Polish)

  • This should be considered a 6 weeks free offer. Waiting 13 months for the next 4 weeks free is nonsense.

    Using a bit of simplified maths for the months and weeks, over 13 months you could get 5 × 1 month (paid) and 6 weeks free deals by churning to new insurers.

  • So Im always worried these things have asterisks in them that aren't clear.

    Could you sign up for this, get 6 weeks free after paying for your first month and a couple of days after you join go get some glasses, get your teeth done at the BUPA dental clinic, and it'd be all covered?

    • Could you sign up for this, get 6 weeks free after paying for your first month

      Yes, and:

      Customer must maintain the Eligible Bupa Health Insurance Policy (see section 3 below) for 30 consecutive days from the join date and be financial to be eligible to receive the initial 6 weeks free offer

      You also ask:

      and a couple of days after you join go get some glasses, get your teeth done at the BUPA dental clinic, and it'd be all covered?

      Yes, provided they were categories with waiting periods waived under the '2- and 6-month waiting periods'-waived promotion and other terms being met.

      Nothing too tricky about this promotion other than waiting for the extra 4 weeks being, in my opinion, low value due to the long hold time required for eligibility.

      Bupa is banking on the '10 weeks free' headline pulling in clicks and calls.

  • As per xsacha’s comments on “WELCOMEBACK12”.

    I’ve been with Bupa for just over a year. Haven’t switched as I’ve been lazy. I called up and just said a mate has left and got that offer, can I have the same thing applied as opposed to leaving for Medibank. Bupa instantly extended my coverage by 6 weeks (instantly, no 30 day waiting period) and said I’d get another 6 weeks after 12 months.

    Will probably switch in ~6-8 weeks time for a better promo offer as I’ve done in the past.

    So ive switched to the bupa 12 weeks free offer mainly for 6 weeks free after 30 days.
    I jumped from Doctors health which i got 8 weeks free after 60 days and got $100GC via referral. Claimed $1200 (Dentist, $600 contacts, alot of sessions of massage with no gap payment)
    Was on bronze hospital and highest extras cover, cost me $300 after GC for 17 weeks.

    Now im with bupa, paid $200 bronze hospital with highest extras for approx 11 weeks till early jan.
    Funny thing is they didnt carry over massage used so now i have another $300 for massage to use over 2 months and can claim a further $350 for contact in Jan when limits renew.

    So basically $500 for 6 months bronze hospital with top extras and will claim close to $2k for things i actually need.

    I will then hop onto another PHI with high cover for orthodontics as i need some minor work , hoping to find a insurer with $1200 limit for ortho and then to AHM as their limits renew in July for more contact lens ($350 iirc) and massage sessions ($300 limit) and will also need new orthotics ($200 covered by AHM) and gym membership ($200 covered by AHM under health managment)

    • This is the way to do it—keep on switching!
