How to add family member

It's easy to add your partner or children* (under 21 yrs old) to your health plan.


All you need is your details (Name & Policy number) and your partner or the children's* details (Name, Date of Birth, Gender & Relationship to you).

When you add new members to your Plan it may increase the cost of your Premiums.  So we have included the Pricing Tables below to check what your new Premiums may be.

How much extra will it cost?
