The easiest way to determine your elgibility is to go to canijoin.com.au and answer a few simple questions. If you are eligible, fill in your details and we will contact you regarding your membership options.
Q: I’m not in the Navy. Can I still join?
Most likely. Navy Health is available for all serving and ex-serving members of the Australian Defence Forces (Navy, Army & Air Force) and their families (siblings, parents, grandparents, children and grandchildren).
You (or your family) are also eligible if you’ve ever been a civilian employee of or a contractor to the Australian Defence Forces. You can confirm your eligibility to join at canijoin.com.au or call us on 1300 306 289. It’s important to remember that if you’ve ever been eligible at any stage in your life, you’re welcome to join at any time in the future.
Q: I’m in the ADF and my family wants to join. Do I have to join too?
The families of serving and ex-serving members of the ADF are welcome to join at any time. So if you’re eligible, your immediate family (siblings, parents, grandparents, children and grandchildren) can take out membership on their own.
Put simply, if your partner, father, mother, brother, sister, son, daughter, grandfather or grandmother has ever been eligible to join Navy Health, then you’re eligible to join too.
Q: I’m leaving the ADF. Can I continue my membership?
Of course you can. We call this our Member for Life clause. If you’re leaving the ADF (or you’re finishing up as an ADF civilian employee or contractor) you can continue your membership, add yourself to the family membership, join again or even join for the first time at a later stage.
If you’re still not sure, confirm your eligibility at canijoin.com.au or call us on 1300 306 289.
