Teachers Health and Healthscope announce agreement

Following weeks of negotiations, the Australian Health Service Alliance (AHSA) and Healthscope’s private hospital network reached an in principle agreement today. Agreement will be formalised over the coming days.

This in principle agreement, will benefit Australian teachers and their families who are members of Teachers Health.

For Teachers Health members, many of whom have been working on the frontline during the COVID-19 pandemic, this means they’ll continue to be covered at Healthscope’s 42 private hospitals across the country. Any planned or unplanned admission into a Healthscope hospital will continue to be covered.

Brad Joyce, CEO of Teachers Health, says “We’ll always fight for quality and value for our members in every negotiation and business decision, and I’m pleased a positive outcome has been reached with Healthscope.”

“As a not-for-profit health fund, our focus is on providing quality and value to our members. That’s why we negotiate our contracts with hospitals, to help members access a high standard of care with minimal out-of-pocket costs.”

“We’re proud to be the health fund for teachers and the education community and we’re truly inspired by the commitment and resilience they’ve demonstrated in recent months.”

Teachers Health has agreements with more than 540 private hospitals across Australia.
