Switch health insurance FAQs

Can I switch my 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 can switch to a different provider if that's what you want. No matter what your reasons are for deciding to switch medical insurance providers, you are within your rights to change providers should you wish to.

Can I change health insurance companies anytime?

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 contract.

Why switch 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 cover for your money elsewhere, financial reasons are a common reason to switch health insurers. 

  • You could receive better service - There’s nothing worse than poor communication with health insurers or to not feel valued enough. 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 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 in knowing you’ll receive the financial support you need for medical treatment should you require it. 

  • You might receive incentives - some health insurers will offer those looking to switch health insurance providers discounts or other benefits in order to make the move.

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 provider for your specific medical needs. Getting 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.
