It’s important to update your Medicare card before changing your name with HIF, as your private health insurance records are linked to Medicare. If the name on your HIF account differs from your Medicare card, your claim could be rejected. The process of updating your name with health insurance organisations varies, with some requiring a specific form, letter, or their own change of name form.
See how much time we can save you!
When changing your name, you may need to notify around 10 to 15 organisations, including HIF, which can take up to 6 hours of research and administration time. However, there’s a way to save time and effort. Our personalised name change kits can prepare all your name change notifications in your name, pre-addressed, and ready for you to sign and send. We even include any special forms required by your nominated organisations. Our kits take just 15 minutes to create and provide the name change procedure and paperwork for HIF and over 500 other Australian organisations, which is delivered within minutes of purchase. This way, you can avoid logging in and researching the procedure yourself.
