WELCOME TO UNION HEALTH – IT’S TIME FOR A FAIRER HEALTH FUND
We have partnered with Union Health – a specialist health fund for union members brought to you by TUH – Australia’s most trusted health fund – to provide you with great health insurance coverage that focuses on fair. So, if you’re ready for your health to be treated fairly, it’s time to take a closer look at Union Health.
WE’RE BACKED BY TUH HEALTH FUND
TUH Health Fund ranked top for trustworthiness, satisfaction and likelihood to be recommended in a national survey by Ipsos Public Affairs. On top of that, in the latest DBM Consultants’ Consumer Atlas survey of over 60,000 Australians, TUH was also voted Australia’s Most Recommended Members-Owned Health Fund. With their support, Union Health delivers the same award-winning level of service. We do what we promise and we stand by our values, union values.
MORE HOSPITALS TO CHOOSE FROM
If you’re going into hospital, not only do Union Health have a larger choice of hospitals, they also offer a higher percentage of services with no out-of-pocket expenses than BUPA, NIB or MEDIBANK (2018 State of the Health Funds Report).
A BELIEF IN QUALITY
Union Health cover have a range of quality products that will suit you through your different life stages.
A HEALTH FUND THAT’S 100% MEMBER-OWNED
Union Health believe in acting in the best interests of their members, not shareholders. That’s why they don’t pay their people commission, so you get fair, genuine advice. And because they’re 100% member-owned, their profits go straight back to you in the form of better products and services.
