Does travel insurance cover pregnancy?

Pregnancy is a Pre-existing Medical Condition that may be automatically covered depending on your individual circumstances.

You can purchase travel insurance that will cover unexpected serious complications* of pregnancy and childbirth that occur:

  • Up to the end of the 23rd week of pregnancy if you are pregnant with a single child; or
  • Up to the end of the 19th week of pregnancy if you are pregnant with twins or multiple children.

*Complications mean any secondary diagnosis occurring prior to, during the course of, concurrent with, or as a result of the pregnancy, which may adversely affect the pregnancy outcome.

Our policy only provides cover for your pregnancy in limited circumstances. There is no cover under any circumstances for childbirth at any stage of the pregnancy or for costs relating to the health or care of a newborn child.

You should read the Product Disclosure Statement (PDS) wording carefully before taking out cover.

Cover is subject to the policy terms, conditions, limits and exclusions in the Product Disclosure Statement (PDS).
