We’re for teachers
Teachers Health was established in 1954 to provide teachers, support staff and their family members with access to quality health insurance products. Today, we are Australia’s largest industry-based health fund, with more than 60 years of experience and covering over 300,000 lives nationwide.
Teachers Health gives members access to:
- a not-for-profit health fund
- great value health insurance
- a range of quality products and services
- generous benefits
- fast, efficient claiming options
- an easy switching process
Teachers Health also provides more than simply health insurance to members – we are committed to supporting our members’ health and wellbeing through additional services. Teachers Health owns and operates Health Centres offering optical, dental, physio, chiro and remedial massage services (not available at all centres) in Sydney (Surry Hills and Parramatta), Newcastle (Hamilton) and Melbourne (Richmond) and gives members access to travel and general insurance.
We understand that navigating healthcare services and providers can be daunting so we also offer eligible members quality, evidence-based health management programs and services, including access to health professionals such as registered nurses, a diabetes educator, dietitian and exercise physiologist. These programs and services are brought to members at no extra cost.
As a not-for-profit health fund, we also give back to the education community through sponsorships, scholarships and health and wellbeing programs.
