You can now make payments online

We’ve added some new self-service functions to make it easier for you (or the policyholder) to update your policy in the Member Portal: 

  • Make an immediate online payment to your membership. Click the ‘Make a payment’ tile on the home page. 
  • Update the account that we pay your claims benefits into. Click the ‘Edit payment details’ tile on the home page, scroll down to select the member and then select ‘View and edit’ and choose 'Claims account' from the list. 
  • Change your payment method or the frequency of your premium payments. Click the ‘Edit payment details’ tile on the home page, scroll down to select the member and then select ‘View and edit’ and choose ‘Premium payment’ from the list. 
  • Order a new membership card from the member menu at the top of the portal.

Thank you for your patience while we’ve finalised these additional features. We’ll let you know as soon as the next batch of tools are available in the Member Portal.

The lived experience of Defence is our DNA


Whenever I have contacted Defence Health, the staff have always been extremely professional. They are friendly, courteous and knowledgeable about the product. I have recommended them to family and friends and encouraged them to join if they are eligible.


Defence Health has been extremely supportive of me since my trouble in December 2021. I was very healthy when I joined but then everything went wrong with my health and you were there for me without any trouble.  Thank you for your help.


Over the years, my wife and I have had experience with a number of health insurers, and we're happy to say that Defence Health has been the standout. Reliable, good coverage for as fair a price as is possible.
