Discounts for 18 to 29 year-olds
We offer age-based discounts on Hospital cover for Australians between the ages of 18 and 29.
The discount depends on your age when you first take out an eligible Hospital cover. It ranges from 10% if you take out cover before the age of 26 to 2% if you take out cover at the age of 29. The discount is ongoing, so if you keep your eligible Hospital cover, you’ll receive the discount every year until you turn 41.
From then on, the discount will reduce by 2% a year until it reaches zero.
Am I eligible?
To be eligible you’ll have to have your own policy or a policy with your partner. The age-based discount is not available for dependants who are on their parent's policy. If you are on a couple or family policy, the discount is calculated by taking an average of the discount applied to the adults on the Hospital cover.
Existing CBHS Corporate Health members
To be eligible, you’ll have to have your own cover or cover with your partner. The age-based discount is not available for dependants who are on their parent’s policy. If you are on couples or family cover, the discount is calculated by taking an average of the discount applied to the adults on the Hospital cover.
Thinking of joining CBHS Corporate?
For new members, your discount is based on the age you are when you first take out Hospital cover (see below table). If you switched from another fund after 1 April 2019, your aged-based discount is carried over from that fund . If your previous fund didn’t offer age-based discounts, you will be eligible with CBHS Corporate as per the below table, which provides details of available discounts.

Disclaimer: *As a transitional arrangement for existing policy holders, we refer to your age when your insurer first introduced age-based discounts to your product. For example, if you were 28 on 1 April 2019, you could receive a 4 per cent discount, even if you first purchased Hospital insurance at 25 years old.
