Members Own Health Funds

Members Own Health Fund

Australian Unity Health Fund is one of the founding members of Members Own Health Funds, which is a group of 18 like-minded mutual and not-for-profit health funds.

What is Members Own Health Fund (MOHF)?

We're a collective, brought together by the shared belief that a health fund's main priority should be to benefit its members. That’s unlike some other health funds, whose sole purpose may be to maximise profits to return to investors or overseas owners.

Whenever you see the Members Own symbol, you’re looking at a fund that values members over profits and works hard to deliver the best possible service and benefits to you.

All Members Own funds are Australian owned and operated.

Why has the Australian Unity Health Fund joined MOHF?

For over 175 years, Australian Unity has always focussed on helping to improve the wellbeing of Australians. And we have a strong belief that reinvesting profits back into the Australian Unity Health Fund to benefit its members is consistent with that focus.

Members Own funds are committed to …

… returning more to members

On average over recent years (2011–2016), Members Own health funds have collectively given a higher percentage of premium contributions back to members in benefits than the for-profit group comprising Medibank/ahm, Bupa and nib.

… providing quality customer service

Collectively the MOHFs have higher customer retention rates and lower complaint rates than the for-profit group comprising Medibank/ahm, Bupa and nib.

These indicators mean that when you’re with a Members Own Health Fund, you’re more likely to be satisfied.
