Teachers Health was established by the NSW Teachers Federation in 1954 to provide cost-effective health insurance for members of the education industry and their families.
Since 1954, the foundation membership of 2,600 people has grown to encompass more than 370,000 individuals in the Australian education community, creating the largest industry-based fund in Australia.
Our current membership base includes union members who are employees working in public, private and independent primary and secondary schools, as well as tertiary institutions. Administration and support staff in these workplaces are also eligible to join.
We also offer membership to the families of people in the education community including their current or former spouse/partner, dependant children, adult children (or their partner or dependant children), siblings (or their partners or dependant children), parents and grandchildren.
