Territory Health Fund had designed health cover especially for those living in the Top End, offering a choice of healthcare providers and a wide range of extras options for those needing cover flexibility.
Territory Health Fund is health insurance designed for people living in the Northern Territory. Formerly the Mount Isa Mines Employees Health Society and now operated by Queensland Country Health Fund, THF has been providing value for money health cover to more than 23,000 families across the Top End for over 40 years.
Unlike many other health funds, they allow you to choose your own health care providers without affecting the benefits paid and they have a strong track record of value for members, having increased benefits and added new ones every year over the last 7 years and kept premium increases below the industry average for the past decade.
THF provides nationwide emergency ambulance cover for those covered under one of their hospital products (excluding Queensland and Tasmania).
In line with the Private Health Insurance Reforms beginning April 1 2019, THF hospital cover is now grouped into the required government tiers (Gold, Silver, Bronze and Basic).
THF offers Better Hospital Silver Plus cover as their highest level of protection, and Vital Hospital Bronze Plus cover as their mid-level hospital policy.
THF has offers a Young Extras policy designed as an entry-level extras cover. It gives cover for a broad range of therapies suited for people under the age of 30 and is tailor made to keep premiums low but benefits high.
Young Extras can be purchased as a stand-alone extras cover or packaged with hospital cover.
THF rewards their customers' loyalty with a number of member offers to sweeten the deal.
