Partner with GU Health

There are different types of health insurers in Australia: restricted funds which are usually industry based, or funds that focus on the retail market. And then there’s specialist corporate health insurers like GU Health. We're focused solely on providing innovative health insurance products and services to businesses.

At GU Health, corporate health insurance is not just something else we do; it’s all we do. Unlike retail health funds we understand that no two businesses are alike — that’s why your corporate health insurance plan should be unique to your business.

Servicing over 300 companies, we apply our expert private health insurance knowledge so that you’re not forced into a one-size-fits-all solution. We work with you to ensure your company’s health plan will be tailored to your industry, budget, payroll structures and employee profile.

Lost productivity in the workplace has been estimated to cost businesses around $6.4 billion a year1 and is attributable to factors such as obesity or attending work when sick. There’s no doubt that investing in employee health and wellbeing can make a positive contribution to your bottom line.

Be assured that the value of an expert provider will be noticed by your employees, with 97 per cent2 of our members indicating they appreciate their employer’s support for their health insurance. Four out of five also say private health insurance as an employee benefit would influence their choice when deciding on a future employer.2

Partnering with GU Health will ensure you get more from the investment in your most important resource — your people. GU Health can work with you to tailor a solution that'll make a tangible difference to employee engagement and productivity.
