Who is a dependant?

There's plenty of jargon involved with private health insurance - this can even include different terminology around the types of people who are covered. One example is dependants - what does 'dependant' mean for us?

Basically, a dependant is a person aged under 25 years, who does not have a partner and is therefore eligible to be on their parent/s membership. If you've got a family policy, your dependant/s can be covered up to the age of 25, regardless of whether they're a student or not.
