Linda's Story

Linda chose Teachers Health more than 20 years ago when she first became a primary school teacher. As her needs have changed, Linda has changed her cover with Teacher Health’s and now enjoys peace of mind for her and her family with Mid Hospital 300 and Top Extras. “I always understood the value of investing in private health insurance, especially when it came to claiming for medical expenses and little extras like massages, but it wasn’t until I had my two children that I really learnt the real value of being a member of Teachers Health and the peace of mind it brings. The benefits they offer on dental and optical claims under their Top Extras cover type have been second to none. My eldest daughter has needed glasses from the age of 8 and we’ve been able to claim up to $260 a year of the costs for new frames and lenses for her every year. I know that lots of kids need some sort of orthodontic work done to their teeth and mine were no exception. My youngest needed braces and our Top Extras cover with Teachers Health Fund saved us $2,500. I chose an excess on our Hospital cover to save a bit of money on our contributions but I know that the excess does not apply to my children while they’re under the age of 21 which is great. I recommend Teachers Health to all of my family members because of the great benefits they offer. The friendly service is just a bonus for me. And it helps that we’ve never had a claim refused or had the process bogged down by red tape.”
