Introducing Our Partner: Teacher's Health Fund
Teachers Health Fund is the only private health insurance fund exclusively for the education community. Created by teachers for teachers over 60 years ago, Teachers Health Fund now covers the lives of over 270,000 teachers, education staff and their families around Australia.
As a not-for-profit organisation, Teachers Health Fund gives back to the education community through sponsorships, scholarships to support professional development and programs to care for the health and well-being of those in the education community. As the largest industry-based health fund, they are committed to providing great value health insurance to their members through lower costs and generous benefits. They are for members, not shareholders and in the last financial year they paid 93 cents in benefits for every dollar received in contributions.
