Our story

UniHealth is private health insurance exclusively for people in the higher education community and their families. Brought to you by Teachers Health, Australia’s largest industry-based health fund with 60 years’ experience in supporting the education community, UniHealth provides great value health insurance to its members through lower costs and generous benefits.

As a not-for-profit health fund, any surplus generated by the Fund is invested back into the organisation to support increased benefits and services. UniHealth does not pay dividends to shareholders.

As an industry-based health fund, membership of UniHealth is open to anyone working in a higher education institution anywhere in Australia – universities, colleges, TAFEs and RTOs. Eligible members include lecturers, tutors, management, support and administration staff and maintenance workers, provided you are a current or former member of a relevant education union. In addition to this, your spouse or partner, or any member of your immediate family can join too.
