Considering leaving UniMed?

We are here to help

We realise that members’ circumstances change and they may consider whether it is worth continuing with their UniMed health insurance plan. These are often difficult decisions as members consider what they might be giving up if they cancel their health insurance plan.
If you are in this situation you may find it helpful to ask yourself the following questions:

  • What has changed since I originally joined UniMed? Has my health improved? Has access to the public health system improved?
  • How much could I afford to pay for health insurance? Have I fully considered the range of options to reduce my premium
  • What happens if I decide that I have made the wrong decision and want to re-join UniMed in the future? If I have an existing medical condition, will it be covered?

We feel obliged to point out these questions because we want to make sure that members make an informed decision about their future relationship with UniMed.

Most of our plans offer a choice of excesses that can reduce your premium. The highest excess ($3,000) can save you as much as 35% off your premium!
