Nurses and midwives across Australia will have access to a new and exclusive health fund, following the launch of Nurses & Midwives Health. Mr Brad Joyce, Chief Executive Officer of Nurses & Midwives Health, says it is time a health fund existed for those who are dedicated to caring for the community. “Up until now, nurses and midwives have not enjoyed the benefits and experience of a dedicated health fund to call their own,” Mr Joyce said.
Nurses & Midwives Health is focused on providing these important members of our community with relevant and affordable health cover at every stage of their life, allowing them to take control of their health and wellbeing and that of their families.”
Nurses & Midwives Health is not-for-profit and will not pay dividends to shareholders or overseas investors, ensuring that any surplus generated will be reinvested into the Fund to benefit members. “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,” Mr Joyce said. As a not-for-profit organisation, Nurses & Midwives Health will always put the interests of members first. Any surplus generated by the Fund will be reinvested to support lower premiums, increased benefits and additional services.”
As an industry-based health fund, Nurses & Midwives Health will only be open to members of the Australian Nursing & Midwifery Federation and its branches. Nurses & Midwives Health will work closely with the nursing and midwifery unions in a spirit of cooperation and partnership to ensure that the Fund understands and meets members’ needs.
Established and run by Teachers Health Fund as a separate legal entity and health fund, Nurses & Midwives Health will leverage over 60 years’ experience to bring nurses and midwives their own dedicated health fund. “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.”
