Quality health cover at an affordable price
Ensuring you and your family have adequate health cover is an important consideration. While private health insurance can be considered expensive, avoiding private health cover may leave you exposed to the Government's Medicare Levy Surcharge and Lifetime Health Cover loadings.
Recognising these issues faced by our members, TelstraSuper negotiated HCF private health cover with a discount of up to 5% on premiums. It is another benefit for TelstraSuper members.
Established for over 80 years, HCF is Australia's largest not-for-profit health fund. This means that, like TelstraSuper, HCF exists to benefit members. HCF has a range of great value cover options available that offer genuine value for money, and they consistently return more in benefits than the industry average.
In recognition of their excellent value-for-money offering, leading ratings agency, Canstar Cannex, awarded HCF their top national award in 2014 - for the sixth year in a row!
HCF has also been recognised for providing the most outstanding customer service in Australia, winning the 'Best of the Best' title at the 2013 Customer Service Institute of Australia (CSIA) awards.
Switching to HCF is easy
HCF will contact your current health fund and do the paperwork for you. Providing you are switching to an equivalent level of health cover, you won't have to re-serve waiting periods
