Why we say we offer cover like no other...


Close hands

Members first

Looking out for each other extends beyond the job and our members really are our biggest advocates. So ask around, chat to your colleagues or read our online reviews from others in the front-line community- they'll assure you that Emergency Services Health is cover like no other. Because we exist for our members, not shareholders or overseas owners.


Exclusive Rollover Benefit

Over Rolling Extras cover is the only cover in Australia that let's you roll over unclaimed Annual Maximums from one calendar year to the next on most Extras services.*

For example, if you go a year without claiming optical benefits (such as new prescription glasses and/or contact lenses) your $350 Annual Maximum becomes $700 12-months later.*

*subject to waiting periods and other conditions.

More choice in providers

We find our members like to make more of the decisons around who they want to see, and not be constricted to a provider network.

So we give you the freedom to choose your preferred hospital, doctor and any other services provider, such as dentist and physiotherapist, as long as the provider is recognised by us.
