Families Looking For Overseas Health Insurance Should Consider HIF

The authors recommends HIF Family Cover as the policy of choice for families on a budget based on the fact that:

  • The policy has no hospital excess
  • It covers 100% of the cost of a public hospital stay
  • It has the low price of $176.16
  • The cover includes medical repatriation and ambulance cover
  • The policy includes pharmaceutical and ambulance cover
  • The policy is DIAC compliance with a overseas working visa compliance letter send upon joining (for condition 8501).

HIF is a ‘not for profit’ Australian health fund. This means that the aim of the fund it not to make a profit but provide the best service to its members (policy holders). Its due to this fact combined with age limitations and the limitation of only public hospital stays that they are able to offer such a significantly cheaper policy than other funds while remaining DIAC overseas visitor health compliant.

HIF also has strong reviews with a score of 6.8/10 on product review (the leading review website in Australia).
