Interested in a quote? Call 13 11 55

A new name in health, a trusted name in Queensland.

It starts by making the whole process easier by letting you chat one-on-one with the specialist Suncorp Health Insurance team.

Suncorp Health Insurance’s commitment to its customers is to make the sometimes complex world of health insurance simple and transparent.

Trust is crucial when it comes to the health of you and your family - which is why you’ll be pleased to hear that you can now get Suncorp Health Insurance (backed by nib health funds).

There are 2 types of cover you can count on - Hospital Cover and Extras Cover. Hospital cover helps you avoid public hospital waiting lists and pays benefits towards the cost of private treatment when you need to be admitted. Extras cover is for everyday health services like physiotherapy and visits to your dentist. You can buy Hospital and Extras as combined cover for peace of mind, or you can choose Hospital only or Extras only.

Whether you’re a young healthy single or couple, a big family, or happily living the life of an empty-nester, we’ll help you with private health insurance that suits you and your budget.

Other important information

Medicare Levy Surcharge

If your taxable income is above the Medicare Levy Surcharge thresholds, and you don’t have an appropriate level of private hospital cover, you may have to pay the Medicare Levy surcharge. It is usually an extra 1 – 1.5% of tax. 

Please see the Policy Booklet for more information. 

Lifetime Health Cover Loading

Lifetime Health Cover is a loading put in place by the Federal Government. It means you'll pay a 2% loading on top of the normal premiums for each year you don't have hospital cover over age 31. The loading only applies until you've reached 10 years of continuous hospital cover.


Australian Government Rebate

To make private health insurance more affordable the Federal Government provides many Australians with a rebate.

Each year the Government provides health funds with a rebate adjustment factor which will be applied to each customer's premium (after any applicable discounts) and determined by their income tier and age. The adjusted rebate will automatically apply to any premium payments made on or after 1 April each year including customers who may be in arrears.

Please note that if you have a Lifetime Health Cover loading, the Rebate is not claimable on the LHC loading component of your premium.

Please see the Policy Booklet for more information.
