Since 1877 we’ve put smiles on the faces of our members and provided peace of mind by helping them cover their everyday healthcare needs. An award-winning provider of health cash plans, we now cover over 315,000 members and their families.
There’s much more to Health Shield than first meets the eye. We’re a non-profit making Friendly Society. This means we have no shareholders, so all of our surplus funds are reinvested for the good of our members.
As a Health Shield member you have peace of mind that everyday healthcare costs are covered with up to 100% cashback (up to annual limits for each benefit period, subject to annual review) and being a member is an affordable way to help keep you and your family healthy. Health Shield benefits can be used for wellbeing and preventative care to stop those aches and pains before they spread.
Cover is available for you or you and your partner and dependent children are covered whichever option you choose. Cover provides separate annual maximums for yourself, your partner (if covered) and all dependent children up to the age of 21 in full time education.
