2013 Lifetime health Cover Direct Mailout

The purpose of this circular is to advise that the 2013 Lifetime Health Cover (LHC) Mailout was lodged with Australia Post on 3 May 2013. The Department of Human Services estimates that the 2013 mailout will go to approximately 191,000 uninsured people approaching 1 July following their 31st birthday and 74,000 new migrants. Mailout recipients have been sent a personalised letter and brochure advising them of their LHC base day and providing them with information on LHC.

The LHC brochure, including translated versions into 19 community languages, is available on the Department of Health and Ageing website and can also be accessed at the Private Health website.

Further information about private health insurance and LHC can be found on the Private Health website or by calling 1800 307 446 (free call). Interpreters are available upon request.
