Cover all your kids for the price of one
Family health insurance gives you peace of mind over the unexpected. With our Family+ offer, you can cover all your children for the price of one.
When you add more than one child under 20 years old to your policy, you'll only pay for the eldest, no matter how many children you add.†
What’s more, a family policy costs 10% less for joint cover compared to the price of separate policies for each family member.††
