Why switch to Australian Unity

No waiting periods for switchers

When you switch to Australian Unity, within 30 days of leaving your old health fund, they’ll recognise the waiting periods you’ve already served. Even if you haven’t completed a waiting period, they’ll apply any time already served towards your new cover.

If you increase your cover when you join Australian Unity, you’ll have to serve a waiting period before you can access the higher benefit.

Choose your own provider

Choose to see your favourite dentist, physio, optometrist or other providers as long as they're in private practice and recognised by Australian Unity^.

Provider recognition conditions apply.

Get up to 100% back on selected preventative dental

No Gap Dental is available on many of our extras covers, and provides selective preventative dental treatments with no out-of-pocket costs (up to your yearly limit, depending on your cover) when you visit any provider in our No Gap Dental Network.

Ways to use extras cover during COVID-19
