Health cover and values that are the perfect fit for Stef from Tasmania

HIF News

“I’m a big believer in free access to health care for all,” says Stef Gebbie, 30, from Tasmania. “But when I was diagnosed with a chronic health condition, it really highlighted the failings of our public health system. I realised I needed to get private health cover to ensure access to the best care.

“I did a simple Google search for private health insurance providers and compared their policies, but ultimately, for me, it’s about ethics!”

That’s why, in February 2022, Stef chose HIF.

“HIF is not-for-profit, carbon neutral and supports the LGBTQIA+ community. That commitment to social responsibility matters to me,” says Stef.

But while our ethics initially attracted her to HIF, Stef is loving the practical benefits of HIF membership.

“It gives me peace of mind knowing I can go through the private health system when I next need surgery. Having the freedom to choose your own Extras providers is also great. I’ve already had a few significant dental issues this year, and HIF helped take the sting out of it.

“And when I hear about new initiatives, like HIF partnering with Reset Mind, exploring a new space in mental health, it just confirms I made the right choice. HIF shares my values.”
