A waiting period is the amount of time you need to wait before you can make a claim through your OSHC.
If a waiting period applies, it will start from:
You’ll need to wait 12 months before claiming money back for any medical costs associated with a pre-existing condition.
If you have a pre-existing psychiatric condition, you’ll only need to wait 2 months.
You’ll need to wait 12 months before claiming any pregnancy-related costs.
There’s no waiting period, so you can claim your pregnancy-related costs whenever you need to.
We may take your period of cover from your previous provider into account when assessing your waiting periods if:
To transfer your OSHC, you’ll need to provide us with a clearance certificate from your current provider.
