    As a mutual, for-member organisation and the largest industry-based health fund, Teachers Health Fund understands the needs of teachers and their families.

    Since 1954, we have been committed to providing quality products and services, along with the highest possible benefits, to our members at the lowest sustainable cost. Teachers Health Fund proudly cares for the needs of over 240,000 people across Australia. As a health fund specifically for teachers and their families, we understand that your health and well-being is important. We know that it is a particularly difficult decision for teachers to take leave from work due to illness.   Private health insurance can help you to manage your health needs with a range of  Hospital cover options and Extras products so you can control when and where you are treated and by who. You can also take advantage of services which help to alleviate or prevent an illness or condition such as physio, dental, optical, psychology and speech therapy.

    As a health fund exclusively for teachers, we can give you the credit
    you deserve with:

    • Competitively priced health insurance
    • Generous benefits for services we know are important to you, such as optical, dental, speech therapy and psychology
    • An understanding of the needs of teachers and theirfamilies

    • Online claiming for a range of Extras services
    • A mutual, for-member health fund which means your contributions go towards improved products and services

    How rebate tiers workX

    Most Australians with private health insurance currently receive a rebate from the Australian Government to help cover the cost of their premiums. The private health insurance rebate is income tested. The table below details the different rebate amounts and Medicare Levy Surcharge levels.

    The rebate applies to hospital, general treatment and ambulance policies. It does not apply to overseas visitors cover. The rebate levels applicable for 1 July 2013 to 30 June 2014 are:

    < Age 6530%20%10%0%
    Age 65-6935%25%15%0%
    Age 70+40%30%20%0%

    Single parents and couples (including de facto couples) are subject to family tiers. For families with children, the thresholds are increased by $1,500 for each child after the first.
