The Federal Minister for Health, Mr. Greg Hunt, has announced the approval of Private Health Funds’ premium increases for 2017. 

As part of a member-owned mutual, Doctors’ Health Fund is committed to keeping premiums affordable for our members. For the fifth consecutive year, Doctors' Health Fund has an average increase below the industry weighted average. It should be noted that premium changes to individual policies will vary and these will be communicated to members in early March.

Affordable premiums are naturally an important aspect of anyone’s cover. Equally important is the quality of the benefits available when the need for claiming arises. As the health fund created exclusively for the medical community and their families, our focus is providing quality health cover with benefits for the services that are most important to you.

We’re the best choice for the medical community because we provide:

  • Top Cover that is unique in the health insurance market as it pays benefits up to the AMA list of services and fees. Paying the AMA rate also recognises a fair fee for the quality of care provided by our medical profession

  • No-gap general dental check-ups once a year for Basic Extras, twice a year for Essential Extras and unlimited for Total Extras

  • Freedom to choose – no preferred provider networks for all Extras products

  • Outstanding service – our customer satisfaction in the most recent annual member survey is 95%!

Doctors’ Health Fund members will be advised of the increase to their individual policy in early March. This will be emailed to all members who have provided an email address to the Fund. For members who have not provided an email address, notification of the change of premiums for your individual policy will be made via post.
