Why are more and more
Australians choosing HBF?

We cover more hospital costs, which means less gaps

We cover more of the total hospital bill (which includes theatre, accommodation and prostheses costs), than any other major fund in WA. On average, HBF members get 94.4% back on hospital charges, which makes less out-of-pockets, and more peace of mind for you.

We've got you covered

HBF members are fully covered for 82% of medical treatments in WA hospitals.

We're not for profit

HBF doesn’t have shareholders to pay, which means we can focus on giving as much back to our members as possible.

We're the largest health fund in WA

HBF looks after almost a million members every day. And we’re still growing. We’ve been a proud WA local for over 70 years and with 19 branches throughout the state (more than any other fund) and a Perth based call centre, we're truly part of your community.

We give you more back on dental

More people claim on dental than any other Essentials service - so we make sure you get back as much as possible when you visit a dentist. On average, we cover more of the dental bill than any other major fund nationally+. And most of our members have no annual limit on general dental. That's something to smile about.

We have more than 900 Member Plus dentists

Of course, you can visit any dentist and receive a benefit. But if you visit a Member Plus practitioner you’ll get lower out-of-pocket expenses, along with a fully covered scale and clean each calendar year. And no gap on preventative dental for kids on your policy (up to your annual maximum if you have maximums on your cover).

We cover children for no extra charge

If you've got a family, chances are you're balancing a budget. We understand what it's like, which is why we cover kids on most family policies* for no extra charge.

We offer more choice to mums to be

Our goal is to offer the best maternity cover in WA. If you're expecting, you’ll have over 100 fully covered obstetricians and some outstanding private maternity hospitals to choose from. We’ll also cover the cost of your partner staying over, because you'll definitely need an extra pair of hands!

We'll visit you in hospital

If you need to stay in hospital, we’ll visit you there to see how you're going, explain your cover and answer any questions you have. We visit around 85% of our members staying overnight in Member Plus private hospitals in WA. After all, a visit's always nice, even if it's just your health insurer saying hello.

Out of work doesn’t have to mean out-of-pocket

If you become unemployed, we won’t abandon you. We'll cover you for between three and nine months at no charge. Hopefully that's long enough for you to get back on your feet. Some conditions apply, so please talk to us for details.

We work harder to keep our members happier

We have more than half a million members who’ve been with us for more than a decade. More people stay with HBF and fewer people complain to the Private Health Insurance Ombudsman about HBF than any other fund, relative to our market share. Which tells us we’re doing a great job – but we’re always looking for ways to be even better for our members.
