The student year begins annually on 1 March and dependants on Family memberships aged 21-25 who are studying full-time are required to be registered with Phoenix Health as a Student Dependant prior to the commencement of the student year.

Any dependants aged 21-24 on who are not registered as Student Dependants by 28 February 2022 will be removed from Family memberships.

Keeping your dependant covered if they aren’t studying full-time

Looking after the health of your family has never been more important. If your dependant isn’t studying full-time, there’s a couple of ways you can ensure they stay covered with Phoenix Health.

1. Upgrade your Family membership to Extended Family cover

For less than the cost of a single membership, you can keep your dependant on your policy until their 25th birthday with Extended Dependant cover. Give the Phoenix Health Team a call on 1800 028 817 and we can check if Extended Dependant is available on your level of cover, give you a quote and even upgrade your membership.

2. Take out their own policy with our student offer*

If your dependant chooses to take out their own policy with Phoenix Health before 31 March 2022, we’ll help get them started with their second month of membership FREE, plus they can save up to 10% on selected Phoenix Health hospital covers with the Age-Based Discount.
