1.9% discount includes all other retail discounts and is only available when paying by direct debit. The discount is not available through brokers or comparators, and excludes Overseas Visitor Cover. Not to be used in conjunction with any other offer or discounts

You choose who you see

As a medical practitioner, you understand how important the relationship can be between you and your patients. That’s why we want you to continue to see your favourite providers as well, including your dentist, physio, optometrist or other practitioners, as long as they’re in a private practice and are recognised by Australian Unity. Ask your practitioner if they are recognised by us, or call Australian Unity on 13 29 39 Monday to Friday from 8:00 am until 8:00 pm AEDT (excluding public holidays).

Claim sooner when you switch

When you switch to us within 30 days of leaving your old fund, we'll recognise the waiting periods you've already served. That means you don't have to start all over again, and can start claiming sooner if you're switching from a cover with a similar or higher level of benefits.

Rewards and discounts

When you spend a lot of time looking after the health of others, it helps you to look after your own health too. For this reason you may feel you won’t need to use your health cover very often, but even so, your membership still comes with plenty of benefits even when you’re not sick. Australian Unity members can enjoy a wide range of ongoing discounts and rewards when you log into your Online Member Services account.

Why choose Australian Unity?

Health insurance is not one-size-fits-all, and most people’s needs change at different stages during their life:

  • Young and healthy? You’re probably looking for a basic level of cover that includes things like dental and physio.
  • Planning on starting a family? You’re going to want to look at hospital cover that includes pregnancy, and possibly also fertility treatments and a private midwife.
  • Caring for an established family? You’re looking for a good level of hospital and extras cover to protect your family, and can usually save a bit of money by dropping the pregnancy cover.
  • Not as young as you used to be? In addition to good hospital cover and great dental cover, you’re likely also looking for services to help manage your health.

Australian Unity offers a range of hospital and extras covers that you can mix-and-match to find the combination that best suits your changing needs.
