A history of better health
TUH was founded in 1972 by Queensland teachers to help the education community access first rate health care. Almost fifty years later, our focus is just the same.
We still believe in fairness and treating everyone as an individual, not a number. Our members spend their working lives looking after others and we’re committed to looking after them in return. That’s especially evident in the generous health cover we provide and the respect and care we show all our members. Particularly when they’re unwell and at their most vulnerable.
We are owned by our members
We are, and have always been, a not-for-profit organisation and continue to have IEU-QNT representation on our board so you can be sure your voice is heard. We’re 100% owned by our members, not shareholders. Our profits go straight back into offering better products, improved services and a wider choice of hospitals for you.
We provide quality and genuine choice
We don’t compromise on your health and wellbeing. We have a range of quality, affordable products that will suit your specific life stage.
Enjoy the freedom to use any Australian extras provider. That’s right, there’s no need to change your dentist, optometrist or other therapist when you switch to TUH! If you are shopping around, we have a wide network of providers who offer discounts or agreed rates for some services.
We can also help you live a better life with a boutique series of exclusive Wellbeing Benefits. All the incredible businesses we have partnered with to offer our members exclusive discounts (including, FRANKiE4 Footwear, Adrift Clothing, 99 Bikes, Biome, Edsco and more) are Queensland-born businesses, just like TUH.
Our members are happier
Providing outstanding service is important to us and our customer satisfaction and member retention rates are better than the big for-profit health funds. In fact, 95% of our members say they love our products and services and very few leave us.
