Options for paying your premiums
We’re always looking for ways to help make your membership with us as easy as possible. We offer three payment options to most Southern Cross members:
- Direct debit, or
- Credit card, or
- Payroll deduction if you have Southern Cross health insurance in your workplace. Please check with your employer.
If you’re an existing member you can check this in MySouthernCross.
Paying by direct debit
Most members find direct debit the most convenient option. Advantages of direct debit include:
- Premiums are paid automatically every week, fortnight, or month. The choice is yours.
- Once set up, you don’t need to do anything else to pay your premium. We’ll notify you if the amount of direct debit changes before your next payment
- You’ll receive a discount of 2.5% off your premium, if you are an individually billed member (not in an employer work scheme and the discount is not applicable on CancerCoverPlus)
How to set up direct debit for new members
You can set up your direct debit authority:
How to set up direct debit for existing members
If you are an existing member, you can setup or manage direct debit payments in MySouthernCross. If you have any problems setting up your direct debit please call us on 0800 800 181.
If you're an existing member and want to pay for Cancer Assist or Critical Illness by direct debit, you will need to set this up by calling us on 0800 800 181.
Please note: It’s important to be aware of your regular payments. If you miss three payments in a row, your direct debit will be put on hold. If we haven’t received any premium from you for three months, your policy will be cancelled.
