Members Own Health Funds is a group of 18 like-minded, not-for-profit and mutual health funds. They’ve come together to make Australians aware of the benefits of being with one of their funds. Members Own Health Funds believe passionately that health insurance is about protecting the health of members, not making profits for others.

By pooling their resources and creating AHSA, participating funds are able to respond more effectively to the numerous changes occurring in the private health industry.
The Australian Regional Health Group Ltd (ARHG):
The Australian Regional Health Group Ltd (ARHG) was formed in 1994 by a group of health insurance funds operating in predominantly regional areas.
