Our story

Up until now, nurses and midwives have not enjoyed the benefits and experience of a dedicated health fund to call your own.

We understand that being a nurse or midwife can be both physically and mentally demanding, and it's time a health fund put your health and wellbeing first.

Nurses & Midwives Health was established in 2016 by Teachers Health Fund, Australia’s largest industry-based health fund, to provide nurses and midwives with relevant and affordable health cover at every stage of life.

As a not-for-profit health fund, Nurses & Midwives Health will not pay dividends to shareholders or overseas investors, giving you access to the best possible health cover at the best possible price. Any surplus generated will be reinvested into the Fund to benefit members through lower premiums, increased benefits and additional services.

Nurses & Midwives Health is an industry-based health fund, open to members of the Australian Nursing & Midwifery Federation. Our membership base includes union members working in the public and private nursing and midwifery community. For more information on eligibility click here.

Nurses & Midwives Health works closely with the nursing and midwifery unions in a spirit of cooperation and partnership to ensure that the Fund understands and meets the needs of our members.
