Glossary of terms

Here’s a guide to assist you in understanding the meaning of the terminology used by CBHS.

  • Adding Baby or Dependant

    When a baby is added onto a membership within two months of their date of birth, the baby will not have any waiting periods for the existing cover.

    If you would like to add a dependant to your membership and they are transferring from another fund to an equivalent level of cover with CBHS, they will not be required to re-serve waiting periods. If your dependant is joining a health fund for the first time, certain waiting periods may apply.
