What Medical Life Stage are you in?

- Mature – An intermediate level of cover would cover you for common risks such as heart, stroke and vascular diseases which kill more people than any other disease in Australia - 37.6% of all deaths in 2002*.
- Senior – A higher level of cover should make sure you get hip and knee replacements and possibly Dialysis.
