Member Rewards

 At St.LukesHealth we value the relationship we have with our members and that’s why we have introduced Member Rewards on selected covers. Member Rewards will reward each person who has held top extras cover with St.LukesHealth for five years or more with a 5% increase in the dental benefits and annual dental limits. Member rewards applies to the following products, Packaged Platinum Plus, Packaged Platinum, Packaged Gold, Packaged Silver and Super Extras.

To qualify for member rewards each individual person covered by an eligible product must meet the following conditions:

- You must have held membership of one of the eligible covers with St.LukesHealth for at least five continuous years;

- Qualification is based on length of membership of the individual covered by an eligible product;

- The additional 5% increase in dental benefit applies to all dental services excluding preventative services paid under gap free preventative dental; and

- Previous membership of another health fund does not count towards the five years continuous membership as the rewards is for your length of membership with St.LukesHealth

This is another great reason to maintain your top extras cover with St.LukesHealth.

Will the means-testing of the Rebate affect you?

The Federal Government legislation to means-test the Private Health Insurance Rebate is set to be introduced from 1 July 2012. For the majority of members this will mean no change to their current rebate entitlement or premium as only those earning above the tiered income thresholds shown below will be affected.

The legislation introduces three new Private Health Insurance Rebate Tiers. Under the new tiers, the rebate will start to reduce on a sliding scale for singles with an income of more than $84,000 and couples/families with an income of more than $168,000. In addition, the Medicare Levy Surcharge will increase to a maximum of 1.5% for higher income earners who do not hold private hospital cover.
