About

Queensland Country Health Fund is a regionally-based health fund with 65,000-plus members across Australia. It was established in 1977 and is part of the member-owned Queensland Country Group, which also includes the Queensland Country Bank.

Why join Queensland Country? Because our Members come first.

Member focused

We’re driven to provide exceptional value private health insurance. We will always strive to improve our highly regarded reputation for exceptional Member service to keep our Members smiling!

National coverage

Being the only health fund based in regional Queensland means we understand the health care needs of Queenslanders better than others.

If you work, move or play interstate, you can rest easy because we provide nationwide coverage. We have agreements with most private hospitals and medical practitioners throughout Australia. You’ll have cover for all eligible in-hospital services within Australia, giving you peace of mind wherever you may go. 

Adult children also covered

Adult children can stay on a family policy up to age 21 at no extra cost. Also under some circumstances, adult children can continue to be covered on your family policy until 25 years of age.

Discounts for younger Members

Private health insurers are able to offer premium discounts of up to 10% to 18-29 year old’s taking out their own hospital cover. In 2019 Queensland Country welcomed this reform believing that it will assist younger people to participate in private health insurance by making premiums more affordable. The provision of discounted products by an insurer is voluntary but Queensland Country has taken the stance of providing the discount to all eligible persons across all of our hospital products.

Home away from home

Most of our policy holders live in regional and remote areas of Queensland, so it’s often necessary for people to travel to Townsville or Brisbane for essential medical treatment. Trips like these can mean high accommodation costs for family accompanying the patient. We offer two-bedroom furnished apartments in Brisbane (close to the Wesley Hospital) and in Townsville (near the Mater Hospital) to give our Members a home away from home. Once you’ve been with us for two months, we’re able to offer accommodation at these apartments at concessional rates when you travel for hospital or medical treatment and medical appointments. 

Care Navigation

Care Navigation is a service provided by Registered Nurses for our Members with Better Hospital (Silver+) Cover. The service is aimed at supporting Members who require assistance immediately after a stay in hospital or for those living with chronic diseases.  Care Navigation is part of our commitment to improving the long-term health and wellbeing of our Members.
