It appears my health fund has increased by $300! I’m thinking of changing to Bupa. Who are you with?

  • We are with Bupa and are happy with them, but I’m not sure if they are the cheapest.



  • I’m with Australian Unity and relatively happy. I think all health funds are too expensive so important to keep comparing the market. There are so many sites to help do comparisons for you…….just make sure you read the fine print for each health fund and try and get them to tailor a package to your needs so you’re not paying for things you’ll never use.



  • Westfund has been pretty good!



  • I am not really happy with ours either, the premiums are terrible



  • My family is with Bupa. Make sure you compare like with like, or decide what benefits are more important. Eg. dental cover limits



  • I am with bupa and I think they are a great quality health insurance company they have covered me a lot ,especially in mental health matters that would’ve otherwise cost me an absolute fortune .



  • We’ve been with Westfund now for about 15 years and wouldn’t change.Always receive prompt service and refunds and they cover a wide variety of services. They have gradually increased their premiums over the years , but compared to other funds it’s very minimal.



  • Our family always with BUPA, so far no problem with them.



  • they are all expensive but it is the small print you have to watch out.



  • I recently went through the process of comparing. I used Compare the Market. It was very easy and found it better than other online comparison sites (I do not work for them lol just needed my family’s insurance looked at). I didn’t end up using them to change funds, but used the options they gave me to then do my own research. Basically I used the comparison tool to narrow it down to a few options then did my own research from there. In the end we didn’t change funds, but did lower our level of hospital cover which saved some money.



  • I have been with them all!!!! I am currently with Medibank Private but had to drop hospital cover for a time as I just couldn’t afford it. I chose to do that just for a time as where I live has lots of very good public hospitals close to where I live. It is such a tough thing to afford!



  • I have been with Bupa for while now very happy with them



  • I’m looking at this too so am glad you asked the question!



  • Medibank. Price goes up, too. No escape.



  • Depends on what is important to you in your extras. I have just cancelled my extras as I was not using them. I work for an optom so I get free glasses and I get my teeth done at the university so I have opted for just hospital with CUA and the coverage is fantastic. I am covered for everything at a fraction of the price of other funds with no excess and my kids are free
