If there’s anything the last few years have taught us, it’s that we can’t predict the future and we should never take our health for granted. But, what happens if you aren’t ready to commit to health insurance, but you still want to better manage your health?

That’s where GreenPass comes in. It gives you the perks of being with nib, without paying for the things you don’t think are necessary for you – like health insurance!

What is GreenPass?

GreenPass is a health subscription like no other. It allows you to access health checks and personalised support, whether you want to keep feeling your best (and prevent getting sick down the track) or want to reach a few personal health, fitness and wellbeing goals – and you’ll receive discounts on a range of products and services like your gym memberships, meal subscriptions, exercise, sunnies and more! GreenPass is just one way that nib is making healthy living accessible to all Australians – regardless of their circumstances.

How much is GreenPass?

The best part of GreenPass? You can join for free! We want to improve the health of all Aussies, which is why we give you access to a range of online health checks, a health tracking app and healthy living rewards and discounts.

What are the differences between GreenPass and private health insurance?

Ok, so we know you probably think of nib as a health insurer, but we’re so much more than that. Our aim is to create a healthier Australia. Whether it’s by providing health cover to our members when they need it most, or giving guidance, discounts and tools to help keep all of us healthier – we’re here to be your partner in both sickness and in health.

Health insurance helps bridge the gap that Medicare leaves if you require hospital treatment. From choosing your own specialist and getting the treatment when you need it (instead of joining a waiting list), to getting your own room should you require an overnight hospital stay – being covered by health insurance can save you time, money and stress should you get injured or fall ill. With nib health insurance, our members receive all the benefits of GreenPass, plus more, including access to a wider range of healthcare providers, private hospitals and even more discounts on groceries, entertainment and travel.

When it comes to GreenPass, it’s about giving you the tools you need to keep as healthy as possible – because we’ve all heard the adage: prevention is better than a cure! GreenPass gives you access to a range of personalised health information, health checks, expert tips, health trackers, rewards and discounts.
