HBF Health Limited

Workplace Profile

At HBF, they are making healthy happen; with quality health cover and unparalleled member benefits. 

Based in Perth, they’ve been the health insurer of choice for Western Australians for 75 years. But they are more than that. They are one of Australia’s leading health insurers and the trusted health partner for more than one million members. Their reputation is built on strong customer service, award-winning health insurance products and a growing range of wellness services to help members live healthier, happier lives. Thousands of their members take part in free HBF Fitness classes and the HBF Run for a Reason is now Perth’s leading community running event.

As a not-for-profit health fund, their focus is squarely on members and they are proud that their member retention and customer satisfaction consistently rate the highest of any major health fund in Australia. They are also serious about the health and wellbeing of their employees, both at work and at home; and offer a wellness program that draws on their corporate wellness expertise. 

With 870 employees located across Head Office and branches throughout Perth and regional Western Australia, HBF believes its vision to help members lead healthier, happier lives starts with them.
