Switching to us from another health fund? We'll arrange the transfer for you. By submitting the form on this page, it gives us permission to contact your previous fund to obtain your cover details.
The record of your health cover that we request from your current fund is known as a Transfer Certificate or Clearance Certificate.
If you're transferring to an equivalent level of cover with equivalent benefits, you won't have to re-serve your waiting periods.
When you cancel your health insurance membership with another health fund, you'll need to join Teachers Health within 60 days to make sure you receive continuity of cover.
We can pay benefits when we’ve received a Transfer Certificate from your previous fund and your membership has been paid up to the date on which you received the service.
If you and your partner are transferring from separate memberships, you'll each need to complete a Transfer Certificate Request.
