    I agree with Defence Health. We are with them and have had no issues with two private births and another private operation, as well as numerous extras claims.

    We pay $283 a month for top hospital and top extras (about to be jacked up to $364 a month though, thanks very much, Labour government) with Defence Health for two adults and two kids (neither DF or I are in the Defence forces). They have single parent cover if you don't need to consider DH on your policy.

    I think so far im trying to decide between Defence Health, Bupa and Medibank. Will make a few phone calls tomorrow. Must remember to ask about ambulance cover.

    Thanks for the help. Its such a hard decision and very important.

    I loved being with mbf (bupa) before but defence health just ended up cheaper that's all.

    Both give you your choice of hospy and doctors. Medibank private from memory tells you what provider to use.

    Tried doing a quote today just for comparisons sake on Defence Health and I clicked the "Join Now" button and it came up with a list of people eligible to join. I don't fit into any of those categories. It asks Formyour "defence connection". How do people get around it? Do you have relations in the forces ect?
    My MIL and FIL are ex army reserve and navy. Can I use them?

    I am currently with Medibank. When I got my glasses from Specsavers I got a further discount because they are one of Medibanks preferred providers.

    Im not sure about anyone else. But my DH is a serving member of the RAAF. You could call them up and ask what requirement there are. They were very helpful on the phone.

    You need the Id or badge number of the serving or reservist member. I don't think you are eligible as you or your partner needs to be adf

We were with Bupa too and there was only one place I could find that was a preferred provider for difficult wisdom teeth for BUPA members. It worked out really well for us. My daughter was happy and the total out of pocket expense was only $350 for everything.

    The surgeon even gave me a mobile number and said we could reach him at any hour if we had a problem. Here is the number I have: 0420 622 350.

    If you're with bupa and are in Sydney I would highly recommend them.

    Default my opinion

    In my opinion, Defence Health, Bupa and Medibank are good options for a Health insurance
