Putting members’ health before profit





We’re in health insurance for all the right reasons. 

We’re not-for-profit, we’re for YOU

For almost 50 years, keeping members fit and well has been our priority. We’re a not-for-profit health fund so profits go towards quality healthcare products and services, not to shareholders. Teachers Union Health fund (TUH) stands beside you today and our strong financial base means we’re right by your side for a lifetime of health and wellbeing. 

Our membership team doesn’t get paid to recruit new members. They’re there to help, so you can trust any advice you receive is best for you and your family. 

We get YOU well when you need it

Having private health cover means less painful waiting periods, less downtime and more time to get on with life. Our objective is to get and keep you well. We’re dedicated to ensuring your level of cover suits your lifestyle and gives you access to care where and when you need it. We also offer out-patient care programs that go beyond your hospital stay to get you back on track sooner. 

We’re all about value

We pay more so you pay less by keeping the lid on premium costs and delivering generous benefits when you claim. We partner with more private hospitals across Australia than many larger funds and offer lots of no-gap or gap cover services (which means no more to pay on top of your benefit).

Choose TUH and live your best life with our Wellbeing Benefits program which gives you discounts on products and services that matter to the education community, plus a series of tailored health and wellness programs to maximise your health and wellbeing. 

We keep things simple for YOU

Health insurance should be super simple and stress-free. Joining or switching health insurance to TUH health fund is easy and if you have any questions, our friendly local call centre is just a phone call away. If you prefer to do things yourself, TUH’s great app and online portal make managing your cover a breeze. You can even take a pic of your receipts to make a claim in less than a minute!

We’re quiet achievers

We’ve been quietly providing outstanding service to Queensland teachers, the education community and their families since 1972. We don’t need to make a lot of noise because our members do it for us. They recommend us to family and friends, they tell us they love us, and they’re members for life!
