Members Health has announced that Perth-based private health insurer HBF has joined its association.
“Australians want health insurance that suits their needs and reflects their values. An increasing number of health consumers are joining member-driven health funds knowing that their health is not for profit when they do,” said Members Health CEO Matthew Koce.
“HBF is a well-known respected insurer and is a natural fit for our Alliance of funds. Like all Members Health funds, HBF puts the best interests of its members first.”
“With HBF on board, our Alliance is now stronger than ever before. We are now the voice for over 5 million customers in member-owned and not-for-profit health funds. Our funds make up 35.7% of the health insurance market.
“Our Alliance of not-for-profit, member-driven health funds uses its voice to advocate for affordable, high-quality care, and patient choice of doctor. Our voice is now stronger with HBF.
“Representing an even greater number of policyholders amplifies our voice. It strengthens our efforts to advocate for improvements to our health system for Australians.
HBF CEO John Van Der Wielen added, “Being one of the fastest-growing health insurers in Australia and the nation’s second-largest not-for-profit health fund with around 1.2 million members, HBF has chosen to join Members Health to ensure we can support its important efforts in advancing the interests of members first.”
