"It is time a health fund existed for those who are dedicated to caring for the community."

Nurses and midwives Australia wide now have access to an exclusive new health fund, Nurses & Midwives Health.

The not-for-profit fund is open to anyone in the nursing or midwifery community and their families. To join you must be current, former or associate member of an eligible nursing or midwifery union such as members of the Australian Nursing & Midwifery Federation.

"It is time a health fund existed for those who are dedicated to caring for the community," said Brad Joyce, chief executive officer of Nurses & Midwives Health.

Because the fund is run as a not-for-profit, any surplus will be reinvested in the fund in an effort to increase benefits and services while keeping premiums low.

“We believe that those who wish to take out health insurance should have access to the best possible health cover at the best possible price,” Joyce said.

The company was established by the Australia's largest industry-based fund, Teachers Health Fund, in 2016.

“As the largest industry-based health fund, with industry-leading member satisfaction rates, members of Nurses & Midwives Health can feel confident that they’re in safe hands and that we will deliver the same high standard that Teachers Health Fund members enjoy.”

Nurses & Midwives Health is the latest in an ever-growing list of restricted health funds: CBHS, Teachers Health Fund, Doctors Health fund, Navy Health, RTHealth, ACA, Defence Health, Police Health, RBHS, Emergency Services Health and TUH.
