Following last year’s Canstar award for their suite of Extras insurance policies, HIF has this year topped the list for Private Hospital Cover (WA) with yet another five star rating for Outstanding Value, beating 35 other health funds in their home state including HBF, Bupa and Medibank.
Graeme Gibson, HIF’s Managing Director said, "The Canstar five star rating confirms that our private Hospital insurance policies are the best available in Western Australia, and are highly competitive in the national market. Although they weren’t assessed by Canstar in other states and territories, I am confident that if they had been, we would have done as well, if not better, in those markets."
“We have worked hard to ensure our Hospital cover options are the most affordable in the country. In January we launched a tax-saving product, GoldVital Hospital, which is the lowest priced hospital cover in Australia. Similarly, when all health funds released their annual average premium increases in April, we were proud to learn that our average increase of just 2.98% was officially the lowest for 2014.”
“Our maternity cover has won awards in the past so Canstar’s latest five star rating acknowledges our commitment to providing the best value-for-money health cover for singles, couples and families throughout Australia.”
A recent report by the Private Health Insurance Administration Council (PHIAC) highlighted that HIF’s growth rate of 15% last year placed the fund as Australia’s third fastest growing health fund, and the fastest growing not-for-profit health fund in the market.
