Switching from another OS or OV health fund

Switching from another OS or OV health fund

You’ve arrived in Australia and you may realise that you are not completely satisfied with the level of cover, benefits or services you get from your current health cover provider.

Did you know you can easily switch from your current health care provider to CBHS International Health?

Switching does not impact your studies, work or visa arrangements, provided you do not have any periods without cover in between your existing policy and your new policy.

Enjoy these benefits when you switch to CBHS International Health:

Switching to CBHS International Health is easy as 1-2-3

  1. You need to contact CBHS International Health and purchase your policy.

  2. Obtain proof from the original OSHC provider detailing your membership start and end dates. We will recognise the waiting periods you have already served with the other provider. If you upgrade your level of cover, waiting periods will apply to benefits not previously included under your previous cover.

  3. Once you have joined CBHS International Health, you can request a refund from your original health insurance provider. To do this you need to able to provide proof of your new policy to your original OSHC provider. You will need to be able to demonstrate that your new policy overlaps with the insured period provided by your previous policy to meet your visa
