As you can see there are many different health insurance funds in Australia alone. Trying to choose the right health cover for you and your family can be just as confusing as trying to choose the right home loan. There are many health insurance providers each with different benefits on offer.
Health insurance brokers are available and industry/employee specific health insurance schemes do exist. For example In South Australia Police Health is a restricted access health insurer where membership is available to past and present employees of SAPOL and their immediate family members. For specific details on each of these insurance options you are best to contact the health insurer directly.
