Update on new age limit
The government has enabled health funds to let (eligible) dependants stay on family memberships for longer. Previously, dependants could only stay on a family membership until they turned 25; now it's until they turn 32.
The reform also allowed us to remove the age limit for dependants with a disability.
What’s happening now?
Our systems are ready to roll out the age increase now. We’ve moved our timing for the start of the student year to 1 June 2022 to allow for a smooth transition for members (and us!).
The removal of the age limit for dependants with a disability should happen soon after the above.
Staying up to date
We’ll update this page when there’s further info to share.
