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 undertaking an apprenticeship; 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?
