2020 Product and Pricing Changes

Like any product or service, from time to time health insurance funds must review their products as the cost of medical technology and hospital expenses increase. In 2020 Phoenix Health is pleased to share that we have been able to keep the average premium adjustment to a minimal 3.10%; an adjustment lower than several large for-profit funds.* We’ve answered some of the most commonly asked questions about product and pricing change period in the link below.

By early March all members will have received their premium and pricing adjustment notification which will outline any changes effective 1 April 2020.
Don’t forget you can view your level of cover and all included services and limits at any time via the Phoenix Health Online Member Service (OMS) portal on the website or by downloading the Phoenix Health App from the App Store or Google Play.
