Why Transport Health?

Why Transport Health?
We've been here for over 100 years, so we've had a long time to get it right.

Transport Health has a long history of serving the needs of Australians.  Transport Health traces its origins back over 100 years when the founding organisation was established to serve the interests of Melbourne tramway workers.  Over the years, demand for our insurance products grew and in response we broadened the community served to include all areas of the Australian transport industry.

In 2014 Transport Health changed from a fund restricted to the transport industry to a fund open to all Australians eligible for health insurance. This now means that all Australians can benefit from Transport Health’s value for money products and our friendly efficient service.

Have you been shopping around for a new Health Fund? It's not always an easy choice to make, especially if you've been with your old fund for a long time – they know you, you have history together. You kinda know how it all works and it can feel like there's a lot at risk when you make a change. That's why we're here to help.

If you're interested in making the switch, give our team a call. Talk to us about what you're looking for and what your concerns are. Unlike a lot of health funds, we encourage our team to spend all the time they need with people, whether you're thinking of joining or are already a member. We'll talk you through the options, help you compare our covers with the one you have now, explain all the ins and outs, and help make sure you have all the info you need to make the best decision for you.


Why we're different

We like to keep things nice and simple

We have a simple range of great value health covers to accommodate every budget. It's clear what you’re covered for (and how much you’ll get back when you make a claim). 

We're as Aussie as a Bunnings snag, mate

We're 100% Australian owned and operated. When you give us a call, you're speaking to a team member in Sydney, Newcastle or Brisbane.

Wellbeing programs to help you

Our health management programs are available to Transport Health members as part of their hospital cover. Such as Hospital at Home to help you get home from hospital sooner, or avoid a hospitalisation altogether, with hospital-equivalent care in your own home.


We don't ask you to start from the beginning

When you switch to Transport Health, you won’t lose any time you’ve built up with your previous fund (as long as you join us within two months of leaving them and take out a similar level of cover).
