A policyholder’s student dependant child is

unmarried and not in a de facto relationship.
A policyholder must complete and return to Union Health an Adult Dependant Registration form upon commencement of study. Students are not covered if they cease or defer study during the year.
Extended dependant cover
Union Health offers single parents and families with non-student children (including apprentices) the opportunity to purchase extended dependant cover. This allows young adults who are single (i.e. not married or in a defacto relationship) and not covered as a student dependant to be covered on their parents’/guardians’ policy until the age of 25.
Extended dependant cover is available on all open hospital covers.
