Switch to HBF
We can help you transfer your cover today.
Every health insurer is different. As a not-for-profit member based fund, we strive to provide our members with access to the best personal health service possible.
According to the 2011 State of the Health Funds report, our hospital cover is one of the best available - which is good news for all HBF members.
For a limited time, we will recognise your full length of membership with your current health fund. If you're switching to HBF from another Australian health insurer and you’ve already used some or all of your annual Essentials benefits with your former fund, we’ll need to adjust the balance of your Essentials benefits to reflect this.
It’s a no fuss process as we’ll contact them to arrange the transfer, making the switch as easy for you as possible.

Why choose HBF?
If you choose to switch your health insurance to HBF, you’ll have peace of mind knowing you’ve joined the fund who already looks after more than 900 000 members. You’ll benefit from:
- 94.3% of hospital related charges covered in WA, which is a higher percentage than any other major health fund (Source: The State of the Health Funds Report 2011).
- Up to 90% back and one fully covered scale and clean each year when you visit an HBF Participating Dentist.
- Fully covered glasses at Participating Optical Stores as well as a 20% discount on most designer frames.
- More Participating Hospitals in WA than any other health fund.
When you transfer from another fund
We will cover you for the same level of cover you had with your previous health fund, as long as you have:
- Already served the relevant waiting periods, and
- Have transferred within two months of your financial date with your previous fund.
To make sure you get the same level of cover, you just need to
- Complete this form and we’ll use it to get your clearance certificate from your previous fund
- Make sure you pay your new HBF policy from the financial date shown on the clearance certificate.
Plus, you'll enjoy:
- Access to more participating dentists and branches in WA than any other health fund. We also have many participating optical stores in WA that you can visit.
- A maximum of 12 months length of membership, which means you may be entitled to the same annual maximums as a member who has been with us for a year, depending on how long you have been with your previous health fund. For a limited time we’ll recognise full length of membership with your previous insurer, so now is a great time to switch and keep all those benefits.
- Immediate benefits if you have served your waiting periods with your previous health fund.
- Not necessarily having to serve any extra waiting periods.
