In March 1972, a group of Queensland teachers from the Queensland Teachers Union got together to help fellow-teachers and the education community access first rate health insurance. Teachers’ Union Health was launched from a tiny, sparsely-furnished office in Brisbane’s CBD. The fund quickly grew from one staff member and some energetic volunteers to become one of Queensland’s trusted health funds and the dominant insurer in the Queensland market.
Fifty years on, TUH not only protects the health of Queensland Teachers Union members but all union members Australia wide. Our excellent record of service and satisfaction means that when members join, most stick with us for life. In fact, we still have over 200 members who joined within our first year of operations, and over four thousand who joined in the first five years. What an extraordinary achievement!
