    Default What health fund are you with?

    I'm looking at changing my health insurance and curious what other people are using.

    I only want the lowest basic cover as I hardly claim, also not having anymore babies so don't need obstetrics.

    Thanks!

    HCF, they were cheaper than Bupa and had the same types of policies. I used iselect to compare online, found it really useful.

    We've just settled on a new provider after literally YEARS of procrastinating. We ended up with Medibank corporate cover. We had a few options through DH's work, but they had the most preferred providers in our area - costs and cover were similar across the board.

    We use BUPA, however specifically in relation to my son's medical equipment. A couple of the companies mentioned in this thread presented with issues in relation to this, and it's basically the only reason we took out private health. We have been happy with BUPA so far.

    I'm with Medibank. For the three kids and I, we have top hospital and top extras with a $250 excess. I pay around $125/fortnight.

    HCF
    I changed to HCF after being with Medibank.
    I get so much more back on my dental and optical bills with HCF then I did with Medibank.
