As Australia’s largest not-for-profit health fund, HCF is uniquely positioned to offer great value health cover. Unlike some other funds, we give our members more, not shareholders. More benefits, more cover and more savings. HCF was established in 1932 to provide the community with the means of insuring against the cost of hospital care. Since then, it has grown to become one of the country’s largest combined private health insurance and life insurance organisation.HCF’s mission is to satisfy the needs of Australians for access to affordable, high quality health care when and where they need it, personal protection, and peace of mind.This information is provided by the fund
