How to save on Health Insurance
How can I save?
There are two ways iSelect has helped its customers lower their existing premium on health insurance:
- by changing the level of cover (so you don't pay for what you don't want); and/or
- by increasing the amount you will pay out of your own pocket when making a claim (such as the ‘excess’; ‘front-end deductible’ or ‘co-payment’).
We simply help you find a policy that suits your needs so you don't end up paying for something you might not want.
Other ways we can help:
iSelect also helps its customers with their health insurance in other great ways:
- we can compare your current costs and policy features to those policies available via iSelect so you can decide if it may be better to move health funds, policies or coverage features;
- we can provide you with advice on hospital policies that may remove the need to pay the Medicare Levy Surcharge (if applicable).

Health Insurance Prices at iSelect
The premiums offered on our site are the same (excluding some special offers that may be provided by selected health funds) as those you will find at a local agent or directly through a health insurance fund.
Importantly, our service is at no additional cost to you. For our efforts, iSelect receives a fee from the relevant
participating health fund whenever a
customer enters into a health insurance policy arranged by us. The health fund generally pays a percentage of the base premium, and this
amount is not an additional charge to you.
We make every effort to ensure that the product you purchase is appropriate for both your situation and your budget based on the information you provide us.
Our participating health funds, covering a range of policy combinations together with our great advice and side-by-side comparisons, put you in control of your health insurance purchase.
Our Sales & Customer Service team is staffed with experienced insurance specialists who can answer your health insurance questions
quickly and accurately during the purchasing process and through the duration of your policy.
Our web site is designed to provide an easy-to-use tool for learning about insurance and coverage options and making the purchase process simple.
All of our plans include online applications, payment and mail/fax applications.
