About TUH

Who are we?

Founded in 1972 by Queensland teachers to help fellow-teachers and the education community access first rate health care.

Our members spend their working lives looking after others and we’re committed to looking after them in return. That’s especially evident in the generous health cover we provide and the respect and care we show all our members. Particularly when they’re unwell and at their most vulnerable.

We are, and have always been, a not-for-profit organisation.

We are owned by our members

We are 100% owned by our members, not shareholders. Our profits go straight back into offering better products, improved services and a wider choice of hospitals for you.

We believe in providing quality

We don’t compromise on your health and wellbeing. We have a range of quality products that will suit your specific life stage.

We provide genuine choice

Enjoy the freedom to use any Australian extras provider. That’s right, there’s no need to change your dentist, optometrist or other therapist when you switch to TUH! If you are shopping around, we have a wide network of providers who offer discounts or agreed rates for some services. 

Our members are happier

Providing outstanding service is important to us and our customer satisfaction and member retention rates are better than the big for-profit health funds. In fact, 95% of our members love our products and services and very few leave us.

Our members are financially better off too

TUH works hard to keep average premium increases as low as possible and we return the majority of the premiums to members in the form of benefits and services. What’s more, we offer a higher percentage of services with no out-of-pocket costs than BUPA, NIB or Medibank. (2018 State of the Health Funds Report).

A history of better health

Over forty years ago we were started by a group of teachers wanting better health insurance. And, while we now protect the health of Australians from various industries, our approach is the same. We believe in fairness and treat everyone as an individual, not a number. While you’re busy looking after others, we’re busy looking after you. It’s how we stay all together better.

Acknowledgement of traditional owners

We acknowledge the traditional custodians of the lands on which we work each day, and pay our respects to Elders of those lands, both past and present.
