Student Dependant - Frequently asked questions

 

A Student Dependent is a child that can stay covered under their parents’ health insurance cover if they meet certain study eligibility requirements.


What are the Student Dependant eligibility requirements?

Your child must be:

  • At least eighteen years of age and not have a spouse;
  • Be a full-time student at a school, college, or university or a first or second year apprentice; and
  • Under the age of twenty-five years.

When is my child not eligible to be a Student Dependant?

Student Dependant coverage ends if your child:

  • Turns 25
  • Is no longer studying full-time
  • Gets married or enters a de-facto relationship.

How long is the Student Dependant period?

The Student Dependant year runs from 1 March to 28 February the following year. We’ll get in touch with you towards the end of the student year to remind to re-register, so they remain covered for another student year.


How to re-register your child’s Student Dependant status

To re-register the status of your dependant, login to the Member Centre and select ‘Student Declaration’ under the “My Account” tab, and follow the instructions provided. Alternatively you can fill out the Student Dependent Form, and email it to help@cbhs.com.au or post it to Locked Bag 5014 Parramatta NSW 2124 prior to 1st March 2019.

You can keep your child on your cover if you upgrade to a Non-Student Dependant cover. For more information on Non-Student Dependant cover, click here.

Is it time for your dependant to start their own cover?

I joined as a CBHS member in 1978. Through many health events and challenges CBHS has always been there for me and my family. Their exceptional service over this time has always been appreciated.

I've not long joined CBHS from another fund, but so far I've been impressed by the super helpful and friendly staff, the higher claim limits and rebates at a very competitive premium, and how easy it is to lodge manual claims through the app. Thanks CBHS - you've won me over! 😃

I have been with CBHS since I began at CBA 15 years ago...Now I have three beautiful children, one who has a disability. Our top extras cover has been really essential for his early intervention. I do love the ease of claiming online.

What Our Members Think

I am relatively new to CBHS and am loving it already. I worked for a CBA subsidiary a long time ago but was still eligible to join. So much better that the for-profit funds - our premium is only a little more and we pay a lower co-contribution and get great benefits. I am loving the massage rebate for my partner and gym rebate for me!

I'm extremely happy with CBHS! I have been a customer for about six years. I think the price is reasonable. And i would refer you to my family and friends any day. Thank you CBHS!!!

Love CBHS as I never have to doubt that they've got my back when I need it. Been through other insurers who have limited options or limits, yet cost the same or more.
