Can I manage my AHM health insurance policy online?
Yes. As AHM are proud supporters of the environment, it’s encouraged that members manage their policy online. Unless you specifically ask for a printed copy, they will send you policy documents, tax statements and other communications electronically.
Do I need AHM travel insurance if I have health insurance?
Yes. Your health insurance does not cover you overseas. If you are travelling overseas, you need travel insurance. AHM also offers travel insurance, and you can compare travel policies on the Canstar website.
And vice versa – travel insurance only covers you while you are away from home on a trip. While you are in Australia, you need health insurance if you want to be covered for private healthcare costs. Find out more about the difference between health insurance and travel insurance here.
