Discover why so many people are choosing HBF

We’re for our members

Just like GMF, HBF are not-for-profit, which means they run purely to benefit members. HBF passionately believe that health insurance is about protecting the health of members, not making profits for shareholders or overseas owners.

HBF - one of Australia’s largest health insurers

With over 75 years of experience looking after the health of West Australians, HBF has become the largest health fund in WA and one of the largest in Australia, boasting around 1 million members. You can trust HBF to look after your health and insurance needs.

Your partner in health

Regular physical activity not only keeps the body in tiptop shape, but also keeps the mind healthy too. To help members become active, HBF offer a range of initiatives, like discounted gym memberships, running gear and eyewear.

HBF members are happier

Focus on services and member benefits means HBF members are more satisfied with HBF as their health insurer. In fact, they have the highest member retention of any major fund and are ranked number one for customer satisfaction amongst all the major health funds in Australia.
