Health insurance created exclusively for people in the higher education community and their families.


UniHealth Insurance is the private health insurance fund exclusively for people working in the tertiary education community and their families. Brought to you by Teachers Health Fund, the largest industry-based health fund in Australia with more than 60 years of experience and covering over 270,000 lives nationwide, we provide great value health insurance to our members through lower costs and generous benefits.

As a mutual, not-for-profit organisation we exist for members, not shareholders or overseas owners, and in the last financial year paid 93 cents in benefits for every dollar received in contributions.


  • Standalone hospital covers
  • Standalone extras covers
  • Ability to combine hospital and extras covers

UniHealth Insurance membership is open to anyone working in a tertiary education institution anywhere in Australia – universities, colleges, TAFEs and RTOs – and those eligible to join include academic staff such as lecturers and tutors, plus teachers, general, professional and administration staff.

In addition to this, your spouse or partner, or any member of your immediate family can join too.
