Adding children to your HCi cover

12 February 2024

Adding a child to your family is exciting, but don’t forget to add them to your HCi cover as well!

HCi welcomes children to your cover…


If your policy covers just you or just you and a partner, you will need to contact us to upgrade to a parent or family policy from the date you get a dependant.

If you already have a parent or family policy, you can add any new children by contacting us.

And of course, when we say family cover, we include single parents, de facto and married parents.
