I have been looking into our finances and I'm switching my private health from HBF to another insurer. (HBF is costing too much). Apparently Bupa subsidises swimming lessons, which would be a big help for us. Does anyone have private health with either Bupa, teachers health or another one you could recommend? I would want maternity as we will be having another bub in the future, as well as optical and physio. Thanks!

We are changing to bupa tomorrow. We are currently with Medibank but can get the same level of cover for about $40 less per month.
We also like that we can claim $100 per year per child for swimming lessons. I am not sure about whether or not we are covered for maternity as we don't want anymore children, but we are covered for in-patient psychiatry so we don't have just basic hospital. I will have to look at the quote and see what the cover is called.

I am with bupa and they are also. Also if you are with a major organisation you can get a discount.

Bupa is way cheaper but they pay much less when you actually have claims. I recently submitted over $1000 of bills for things I WAS covered for by bupa, all done while I was in a hospital, and bupa paid me $66.
Yep. $66 out of $1000.
They are so rubbish. I have changed to HCF.
Under bupa I used to have $450 hospital bills and get $47 back. With HCF I have $0 out of pocket on the same $450 hospital bill.
If you want cheap then go with bupa, but I personally prefer to pay more and actually get money back when I make a claim.
