New health fund for nurses and midwives

Teachers Federation Health has just established a new health fund exclusively for nurses and midwives who belong to the Australian Nursing & Midwifery Federation and its branches.

The new fund, Nurses & Midwives Health, will be a not-for-profit similar to Teachers Health Fund.

Like Teachers Health Fund, which is exclusively for members of teacher unions and their families, Nurses & Midwives Health will be exclusively for members of the nurses and midwives’ union.

The teachers’ fund is “a legacy of the union movement”, the NSW Nurses and Midwives Association General Secretary Brett Holmes states in the latest issue of Lamp, the NSWNMA magazine. “It is a highly respected service to teachers and educators.”

 “I hope that Nurses & Midwives Health will be welcomed and valued by our members,” Mr Holmes said.

NSWTF General Secretary John Dixon said Federation was justly proud of the exemplary record of Teachers Health Fund, set up 62 years ago by Federation members and now Australia’s largest industry-based health fund. He welcomed fellow unionists in the Australian Nursing & Midwifery Federation to their new fund.

“I urge teachers to invite friends and community colleagues who are nurses and midwives to join Nurses & Midwives Health, pointing out the benefits we enjoy,” Mr Dixon added.

Teachers Health Fund was named Private Health Insurer of the Year by Roy Morgan Research Customer Satisfaction Awards for 2015 and 2013 and regularly wins awards for customer service.

The fund has also been named Employer of Choice for Women and Employer of Choice for Gender Equality by the government’s Workplace Gender Equality Agency.
