Australian Unity lets you continue to see your favourite physio, optometrist or other provider without reducing how much you get back.*
That’s unlike some health funds who lock you into their provider network, and may give you back less (or maybe nothing at all) if your favourite provider isn’t on their list.
With choice of provider, you can get treated by any health provider who is in private practice and is recognised by Australian Unity.
* Excludes No Gap Dental.
Get up to 100% back on preventative dental
You’ve heard the old saying that prevention is better than cure. That’s especially true when the cure can be both painful and expensive!
That’s what our No Gap Dental cover is all about. It’s available on many of our extras covers, and provides preventative dental treatments with no out-of-pocket costs (up to your yearly limit) when you visit any provider in our No Gap Dental Network.
Many of our health covers offer Preventative Health Services to help you keep healthy—these services can include things like weight loss programs, fitness training and quit smoking programs.
Our Rewards Program provides discounts and special offers on a wide range of products and services.
Australian Unity’s Wellplan provides healthy and tasty recipes, fitness and training tips and hints, and general information about health.
It all began in a pub 175 years ago
Which we figure is about as Australian as you can get!
Australian Unity traces its origins to a pub in Melbourne, where on 7 December 1840, a group of eight men decided to form a friendly society with the goal of looking after the health and wellbeing of its members.
We’ve seen a lot of changes over the past 175 years, and sadly, the old pub in Elizabeth St is no longer there.
The most important things remain the same though, including Australian Unity’s focus on taking care of our members and improving the wellbeing of Australians.
We’re a Members Own Health Fund
If you’re looking for a health fund that’s run to benefit you and your family, rather than investors or overseas owners, a Members Own health fund is right for you.
More than 2.5 million people across Australia have already placed their trust in health funds that carry the Members Own symbol.
It’s not hard to see why—as well as giving you access to quality health care, collectively Members Own funds give more back, provide better service, and have more satisfied members than household name funds Medibank, AHM, NIB and Bupa combined.
