Important information about COVID-19 and your health insurance cover

We are collectively facing a serious global and national health and economic challenge with COVID-19. As your health insurer, we want you to know that your health and wellbeing is our priority and we are here to support you and your family. We have instituted a number of initiatives* to support you through this time including:

  1. Delaying your health insurance premium increase for 6 months
  2. Extending COVID-19 cover to all our health Insurance policies
  3. Extending benefits for some key Extras items to cover Tele-consultations
  4. Offering Financial Hardship solutions to those suffering financial stress due to COVID-19

Your physical and emotional wellbeing is more important than ever at times like these and AIA Vitality – provided with your Health Insurance cover – is an excellent way for you to help manage these. AIA Vitality can provide tools to help you keep up your physical activity while at home or outside, and will reward you with points each day. Online health checks and mental wellbeing online assessments can help you to better understand your health. We hope that looking after your health and wellbeing remains part of your daily routine.

*See FAQs below for more details on our COVID-19 initiatives. 

Premium increases that were due to take effect on 1 April will now be delayed for six months so that we can provide some immediate relief to our members. This will be automatically applied to your policy; there is nothing you need to do to facilitate this. 

It is important to provide certainty in uncertain times, so we would like to reassure you that we have extended cover for COVID-19 to all of our policies. So, if you are admitted to hospital as a private patient due to COVID-19, you will be covered.

COVID-19 Cover Extension will be available until 30 September 2020 to help you maintain your health and wellbeing throughout the COVID-19 restrictions. We will continue to review the need for these additional benefits as the year progresses. To be eligible for Cover Extension you must have held a myOwn policy for a minimum of 2 weeks.

We understand that it may not be possible to access face-to-face services under your Extras cover. We are now providing benefits for services delivered by video conferencing or telephone. These services include:

  • Psychology (including counselling and psychotherapy when provided by a psychologist)
  • Physiotherapy (including post orthopaedic surgery rehabilitation, chronic musculoskeletal condition, cardiac rehabilitation or pelvic floor muscle training)
  • Dietetics
  • Speech pathology
  • Occupational therapy

Tele-consultations will be available until 30 September 2020 to help you maintain your health and wellbeing throughout the COVID-19 restrictions. We will continue to review the need for these additional benefits as the year progresses. For services eligible for Tele-consultations you must have served the applicable waiting period for that service under your policy.

If you are experiencing financial stress because of COVID-19, we can help find a solution that will suit your individual needs and cover. Please call us on 1300 300 338 and one of our Member Services Team representatives will talk to you about options during this time.

What is health insurance?

Hospital cover helps to cover the cost of treatment you receive in hospital. Having Hospital cover means you can be treated in a private hospital and avoid public hospital waiting lists. You get more control over where you're treated, and who treats you. Each level of myOwn Hospital Cover (from Basic to Gold) is differentiated by the list of treatments that are included. For example, cover to be treated in a Private Hospital for pregnancy is only available on our Gold Hospital cover.

Extras cover is for treatments that do not take place in a hospital, like visits to the dentist, physiotherapy or optical services. myOwn Extras cover can only be taken with Hospital cover. The types of services you can claim for under your Extras cover will depend on the level of cover you take out, but essentially this type of cover is to help with services and treatments received out-of-hospital, that aren't covered by Medicare.

Combined cover is what it says on the tin: when you take out both Hospital and Extras cover. That's why you'll hear the term 'Hospital and Extras' thrown around so much when it comes to health insurance - it's a popular choice.

Most Australians with private health insurance currently receive a rebate from the Australian Government to help cover the cost of their premiums.

  • as a reduction of your myOwn premium; or as
  • a lump sum payment when lodging your tax return

The level of your rebate depends on your income and your age. To find out more and to find out how much you could get back head to the Private Health Insurance Rebate Calculator on the Australian Taxation Office website

The MLS is simply an extra tax that people above a certain income threshold have to pay if they don't have eligible private hospital cover. It's calculated in three tiers for singles and couples/families. You can find out more about that here.

The Lifetime Health Cover (LHC) loading is a Government loading on your private hospital cover premiums. It was introduced on 1 July 2000, to encourage people to take out private hospital cover earlier in life and encourage them to maintain it. LHC is a 2% loading on top of your premium for every year you don't have hospital cover after you turn 30. The maximum loading is 70%. You can find out more here.

A waiting period is the time between joining or upgrading your level of cover and the date from which you're allowed to start claiming. Waiting periods exist for all services within both hospital and extras covers and apply to:

  • New memberships
  • Additional members to a membership (unless the new member/s has/have previously served all waiting periods on equivalent cover with myOwn or another fund) except for newborns, adopted and permanent foster children where the family membership has been in existence for at least two months.
  • Existing members who upgrade their cover to a higher level of cover
  • Members who transfer to myOwn health from another fund to a higher level of cover than that of their previous fund
  • Treatment for a pre-existing condition.

Waiting periods for Hospital treatment range from 1 day to 12 months.

  • There is a 1 day waiting period for ambulance cover and treatment resulting from an accident
  • a 12 month waiting period for pregnancy
  • a 12 month waiting period for pre-existing ailment, illness or condition (except for psychiatric, rehabilitation and palliative care)
  • a 2 month waiting period for any other hospital treatment.

Waiting periods for Extras treatments vary by the treatments vary  from 2 to 12 months, depending on the type of service. These are listed below:

  • General Dental - 2 months
  • Preventative Dental - 2 months
  • Major Dental - 12 months
  • Orthodontics - 12 months
  • Optical - 6 months
  • Physiotherapy - 2 months
  • Hydrotherapy - 2 months
  • Myotherapy - 2 months
  • Exercise Physiology - 2 months
  • Chiropractic - 2 months
  • Osteopathy - 2 months
  • Naturopathy - 2 months
  • Homeopathy - 2 months
  • Acupuncture - 2 months
  • Remedial massage - 2 months
  • Podiatry - 2 months
  • PBS Pharmacy - 2 months
  • Psychology - 2 months
  • Audiology - 2 months
  • Eye therapy - 2 months
  • Speech therapy - 2 months
  • Antenatal and postnatal - 2 months
  • Occupational therapy - 2 months
  • Medically Prescribed Appliances (incl. hearing aids) - 12 months
  • Orthopaedic appliances - 2 months
  • Swimming lessons - 2 months
  • Dietetics - 2 months
  • Other including: Bowel cancer identification kits (1 every 2 years), Melanoma Surveillance Photography (1 per year) - 2 months

We've got agreements with hundreds of private hospitals and day surgeries in Australia - that's what we're talking about when we say participating private hospital. To find out whether your hospital is a participating call us on 1300 300 338. If you're admitted to a private hospital that's not on our list you may have to pay higher out-of-pocket fees.

myOwn is a member of the Australian Health Services Alliance (AHSA). A non-participating hospital is a hospital that has not signed an agreement with the AHSA. If you receive treatment from one of these you may incur large out-of-pocket expenses. Call us on 1300 300 338 or email us at to find out if the hospital you want to be treated at is a participating hospital so you can avoid these costs.

A pre-existing condition is a condition - assessed by one of our medical practitioners - that you've had or shown symptoms of within the past six months (before you joined us, or changed your cover). This affects your cover quite a bit, and there's more on this in our member guide.

The Federal Government sets a schedule of fees for eligible services provided by doctors to inpatients in hospital. Medicare pays 75% of these fees and health funds like myOwn pay the remaining 25%. Doctors and providers are not restricted to charging this fee and are ableto set their own fees, which can be higher than the scheduled fees. If your doctor chooses to charge a higher fee, there will be a gap between what the doctor charges and what the Government and myOwn will pay. This is the 'Gap' and can leave you with significant out-of-pocket expenses. If your doctor participates in myOwn's Access Gap Cover, we'll pay more than the 25% of the schedule fee - leaving you with drastically reduced, or even eliminated out-of-pocket expenses. The best way to find out if your doctor is registered for Access Gap Coveris to ask them.

myOwn covers you for all clinically necessary ambulance services for emergencies in Australia. Emergencies are circumstances when immediate hospital treatment is required for a serious and acute injury or condition where the viability or function of an organs or body part is threatened. Check with your state Ambulance authority to ensure you have the right level of cover for non-emergency ambulance transport within Australia.

A Standard Information Statement (SIS) is a summary of the key product features of your cover. You will receive a link to download a copy of your SIS when you join myOwn and they are available to download from our member portal.

Members can find their policy details on our online member portal:

  1. Click on 'Member Login' on the website header or click here.

  2. Log into the member portal.

  3. Select 'Correspondence' from the left hand side menu.

  4. Underneath this, select 'All Correspondence'.

  5.  Under 'Subject Area', click on [+] next to 'General Messages'.

  6. Scroll down to the earliest message, find the message titled "Welcome to myOwn".

  7. Under 'View', find links to view/download your Standard Information Statement and relevant policy fact sheet.

If you have less than 12 months membership on your current hospital cover, you’ll need to contact us by phone on 1300 300 338 or by email at before being admitted so we can determine whether the waiting period for pre-existing conditions applies. 

It can take up to five working days to complete this assessment, so make sure you factor this in when you book your stay. If you go ahead with your admission without confirming your entitlements and we subsequently determine your condition to be pre-existing, you’ll have to pay all outstanding hospital and medical charges not covered by Medicare.

The best way to find out is to ask them. Every doctor is different and some will even opt in or out on a patient-by-patient basis. If your doctor participates in myOwn's Access Gap Cover they can either choose to participate as a no gap charge or a known gap as follows; 

  1. ‘No Gap’ Your doctor participates in Access Gap Cover and charges you no out-of-pocket for the treatment you received as an inpatient, or:
  2.  ‘Known Gap’ Your doctor participates in Access Gap Cover and charges you a reduced out-of-pocket fee for the treatment you've received as an inpatient. You will be aware of the costs before surgery. 

Just remember to check with your doctor before agreeing to any treatment.

Members with extras cover with dental are eligible to save between 15-40% off dental treatments performed by a approved dentist. Read more.

How does myOwn cover work?

Your cover starts as soon as we receive your first payment and you can begin claiming as soon as any applicable waiting periods are over. 

You can amend your details at any time by logging in to the member portal and editing your myOwn profile. Alternatively, you can give us a call on 1300 300 338. This goes for changing your address details, payment details or if you change your name when you get married.

Only the member - the person whose name the policy is under - and anyone the members authorises can make changes to your cover.

We recommend you contact us prior to your admission to find out if the hospital you are to be admitted to is on our participating hospital list and to confirm that you have the right level of cover for the treatment you are seeking. If the hospital you are admitted to isn’t one of our participating hospitals, you may not be covered in full for your accommodation or theatre costs. Contacting us first means you will know what types of benefits you will receive and what your out out-of of-pocket costs will be.
When you are admitted to hospital, the hospital will ask if you have private health insurance and will check your eligibility with us. All myOwn hospital covers includes an excess cost to help lower your premium and it is when you are admitted to hospital that you will be asked to pay this excess.

You can choose to pay via direct credit with a credit card or direct debit via your bank. Each method and its benefits are detailed in our member guide. Payment cycles are weekly, monthly or annually. Please call us on 1300 300 338 if you want to change how you pay your premium.

If you’re planning to start or grow your family and your hospital cover doesn’t include pregnancy, you’ll have to upgrade your cover at least 12 months before giving birth to ensure all waiting periods have been served. Newborn babies aren’t admitted as patients in hospitals unless there are complications or your baby requires medical attention. In these instances your baby will be covered provided they are added to the policy. Adding a newborn is easy; you can do this yourself through the membership portal or give us a call and we will add the baby for you.

If your card is lost or stolen you should contact us as soon as possible to avoid fraudulent claims and we'll send you a brand new one. Remember, whenever you get a new card from us, your old one automatically becomes invalid so throw it away to avoid any confusion.

All of our hospital covers have a $500 excess option, and we also offer a $750 excess on all hospital covers except for Basic Hospital. A higher excess will reduce your premium. A lower excess means you’ll pay less on admission to hospital, but your premium will be higher.

Where your policy includes an Excess Refund, it means that if you hold this policy or another eligible policy for at least 6 months and hold Silver AIA Vitality status or higher, myOwn will refund 100% of your hospital excess. 

You will need to pay your excess when you’re admitted to hospital and then you can claim this amount back. See your member guide for more details.

To qualify for benefit payments, these must be custom-made by practitioner podiatrist or orthotist. For an orthosis to be custom made, a plaster cast or mould must be taken. Please note that customising, heat moulding, trimming or adjusting an existing ‘off the shelf’ appliance does not constitute a custom-made appliance. Orthopaedic appliances attract benefits where the application of which has resulted from, and is required immediately following, the injury or surgery, and a doctor's letter of recommendation is required prior to claiming.

myOwn does not pay benefits for the hire of any health appliance or equipment. We will, however, fund a percentage of the purchase of the following appliances up to your annual limits, providing you lodge a doctor’s letter of recommendation with your claim:

  • blood glucose monitor
  • extremity pump
  • nebuliser pump
  • sleep apnoea monitor
  • pressure garments
  • myOwn approved orthopaedic appliances
  • non-surgical prostheses
  • tens monitor

A benefit replacement rule applies to some items/services covered by myOwn’s extras cover. This means that after you claim for an item, you must wait a specified period before you can lodge another claim for the same type of item. Call our Member Service Team on 1300 300 338 to find out which treatments have benefit replacement periods.

You can claim for weight loss programs under our Dietetics Extras cover but only when it has been recommended, in writing, by a doctor for preventing or improving a specific health condition. Also, the weight loss provider must be a member of the Weight Management Council of Australia and agree to abide by the Weight Management Code of Practice.
Here are some well-known providers that we’re happy to approve:

  • Weight Watchers Australia
  • Jenny Craig Weight Loss Centres Pty Ltd
  • Simplicity Weight Loss

Please note that we only cover weight loss program fees and will not provide any benefits for meals, groceries or exercise components.

You can only claim extras benefits where treatment is received in person from a recognized health practitioner, received in Australia. To find out if your practitioner is recognised you can ask your practitioner before you make your appointment or call us on 1300 300 338 (we’re open from 8am to 6pm AEDT). You cannot claim for treatments you provide to yourself or to members of our family or business partners and members of their family.

Yes - but only when purchased online from Australian optical and pharmaceutical providers when a script is provided. For a company to be considered an Australian provider, an ABN needs to be visible on the company’s website. Benefits for services, treatments and other costs received overseas are excluded and will not receive any benefit.

Family cover provides cover for the member, their partner and their children including dependant students up to the age of 25. Cover for child dependants ceases once they turn 23, unless they qualify to remain on the policy as a student dependant. When a child dependant turns 23, they have two months to get their own cover and not have to serve any waiting periods if moving to equivalent or lower cover. Student dependants also have two months from either turning 25 or ceasing to be a student to get their own cover. For mid-year school, apprenticeship and traineeship leavers who transfer from their parent’s myOwn policy within two months of leaving school or finishing an eligible apprenticeship or traineeship through a registered training group will not have to serve waiting periods if they transfer to an equivalent or lower level of cover. A letter from their school or registered training group confirming the date of completion is required. For end of year school, apprenticeship and traineeship leavers, they are covered until 31 March of the following year and will not have to serve waiting periods if they transfer to an equivalent or lower level of cover.

You can only claim on Extras treatments that are specifically included in your cover. Here’s a list of some of the treatments (not all) that aren’t covered:


  • Services or treatment for which anyone covered has a right to claim damages or compensation from any other person or body.
  • Treatment where the member and/or dependant is eligible for free treatment under any Commonwealth or State Government Act.
  • Services or treatment rendered more than two years prior to the date of claiming.
  • Services or treatment not covered by your membership and/or is rendered while the membership is in arrears or is suspended.
  • Services or treatment rendered by a practitioner not in private practice and/ or not recognised by bodies approved by myOwn health insurance.


  • Contraceptive, fertility and IVF drugs available through the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme (PBS).
  • Food supplements.
  • Pharmacy items, where they are available over the counter and purchased with or without prescription.  
  • Liquid filled Temazepam capsules.
  • Drugs purchased overseas.
  • Mass immunization, services rendered in the course of the carrying out of a mass immunization. 
  • Pharmaceuticals that are not considered an S4 or S8 drug.


  • Dental procedures where a limit on the number you can have has been exceeded.
  • Dental procedures unless tooth Identifications (ID) are supplied by the provider.
  • Dental procedures carried out and charged by a dental mechanic, other than an advanced dental technician .
  • A range of dental procedures when provided on the same day for example a filling on a tooth that has been removed. Please contact us for further information relating to these exclusions.
  • A benefit will only be paid for a single crown per tooth every five years.

Foot orthotics

  • Any procedure provided by a physiotherapist or chiropractor.

Orthopaedic appliances

  • myOwn specified and approved orthopaedic appliances purchased for support purposes only. 

Pressure garments

  • Pressure garments purchased for reasons other than the treatment of burns, varicose veins, lymphedema or post-operative surgery up to 60 days from hospital discharge only.

For more information please see our member guide.

What is the claims process?

There are lots of ways to make a claim. You'll just need to make sure you've served all your waiting periods before you start the claims process. Then, if you have Extras cover, you can simply use your membership card. Alternatively, you can use our member's portal, or even claim by post. We've detailed the ins and outs in the member guide (plus some extra process info that may come in handy).

You can see them all online. Simply login to our member portal and head to the Claims section to look at your history.

It doesn’t happen often, but there are instances where benefits are not paid at all or are paid at a lower level. These are when:

  • the treatment is not covered under your policy
  • the treatment was not provided by a recognised provider
  • the treatment was not provided in Australia
  • you’ve already claimed the maximum allowable benefits during a specified period
  • you’ve transferred to myOwn from another fund and have already claimed for that treatment
  • it’s been more than two years since the treatment you’re claiming for
  • the health care account has been incorrectly itemised
  • you have an excess to pay on your chosen level of cover
  • the service is subject to a waiting period or another limit
  • you’re claiming for treatments carried out overseas
  • treatment was provided to or from a family member or business associate
  • if myOwn believes that you are not receiving acute care after 35 days of continual hospitalisation
  • surgery is performed in hospital by a registered podiatrist/podiatric surgeon
  • when no MBS item number is provided by the health practitioner
  • if the MBS item is being performed for a cosmetic reason and not medical 
  • the treatment was the second treatment performed on you in a day by a single practitioner

To find out more, we recommend checking out your cover’s detailed terms and conditions published in our Fund Rules. These are available by calling us on 1300 300 338

Private Health Insurance Reforms

The Australian Government has introduced a range of changes to how private health insurance operates to make it simpler and more affordable. The main changes are: the introduction of Gold, Silver, Bronze and Basic levels of cover; standard clinical definitions of what is included in your cover; higher excess options to make your premium lower; the exclusion of some natural therapies from cover and the option to offer a discount of up to 10% for people who are aged 18-29. These changes will make it easier to compare cover across different health funds and in some cases make cover more affordable. 

One of the recent reforms that Australian Government made to health insurance is for all covers to be grouped into tiers: Gold, Silver, Bronze and Basic. The tier the cover is in must be included in its name, which is why our product names are changing. This means that is now easier for you to compare covers across different health funds as all Gold covers (for example) must meet a minimum set of requirements.

One of the recent reforms that Australian Government made to health insurance is standardise the clinical definitions used to describe the services that are included or excluded from a cover. Because this will be uniform across all health funds, it'll be easier for you to know what is and isn't included in your cover and compare this across different health funds.

Young Australians are eligible to receive up to a 10% discount on their private hospital insurance premiums. 

The discount you receive depends on your age when you first take out an eligible hospital cover and ranges from 10% (if you take out cover before the age of 26) to 2% (if you take out cover at the age of 29).

The Age Based Discount is calculated on your base premium before the application of any Australian Government Rebate, Lifetime Health Cover loading and/or any other eligible discount. The Age Based Discount only applies to hospital cover or the hospital component of a package – it doesn’t apply to extras. 

The discount is ongoing, which means if you keep your eligible hospital cover, your discount remains until you turn 41. From then, the discount will reduce by 2% per year until it reaches zero.

The discount is only available on selected products but is available to new and existing policy holders. You have to be the Principal member or Partner on a hospital cover and aged between 18-29.

What discount do I get?

The discount is based off your age when you first purchase an eligible hospital product offering the Age Based Discount.

Member’s age
% discount
18-25 years old 10%
26 years old
27 years old
28 years old 4%
29 years old 2%
30 years old 0%

If you’re on a couple or family hospital cover, the Age Based Discount is calculated by taking an average of the discount applied to the adults on the hospital cover. So, if the Principal member has a 10% Age Based Discount and their partner has no discount, or 0%, the discount applied overall to the hospital cover is 5% (10% ÷ 2).

Where can I find out more information?

The Department of Health has a lot of useful information and a range of helpful fact sheets.
