Who is Navy Health?
Navy Health is a not-for-profit health fund that serves not only Australian Navy personnel, but all Australian Defence Force (ADF) members and their families. They have been providing great value health cover to the Defence Force community since 1955 and are a Members Own health fund, so all surplus monies are returned to members in the form of improved benefits, lower premiums and better service.
Other types of cover available
As well as high quality health cover, Navy Health provides its members with access to a range of other insurances including travel, life, funeral and income protection insurance.

What are the benefits of Navy Health?
As a not-for-profit and Members Own health fund, Navy Health is entirely member-focused, diverting profits back into the fund rather than to shareholders or overseas owners. This is realised in the form of premiums that are often lower than the industry average, benefits that provide better value for money and personal service that ensures high customer satisfaction and retention.
Two examples of Navy Health’s focus on member benefits are:
- A 10% discount on all payable insurance premiums for serving ADF members when covering their families as an acknowledgement of their commitment and sacrifice.
- Free cover for the first month when you take out a Navy Health life insurance policy.
