Transferring from another health fund

Switching is simpler than you think! It takes around 5 minutes and you can switch over the phone, online or by sending in your application.

You won’t have any waiting periods that you’ve already served with your old health fund, which means that you’ll only have waiting periods for things you’re not covered for now. You can find more details about waiting periods here.

To switch, just join Peoplecare from the same day you stop your cover with your old health fund. We send them a request for details of your cover with them (this is called a Clearance Certificate) and then credit you with the waiting periods you’ve already completed.

Sometimes if you’ve used all of your annual limit with your old fund, you’ll have to wait for the new financial year until we can renew your limits.
