Mildura Health Fund Number One in Victoria for Hospital and Extras Package

Local private health insurance provider Mildura Health Fund has for the first time been awarded the prestigious 2017 Canstar Outstanding Value Award for Hospital and Extras Package in Victoria.

““We’re thrilled that CANSTAR has confirmed our standing as number one for outstanding value for combined hospital and extras cover in Victoria. Within that rating our four “five-star” hospital offerings all sit within CANSTAR’s highest rating area, placing us among the top ten percent of all private health insurers’ hospital products. The Fund has introduced a number of new product initiatives during the past 12 months and this award proves we are on the right track, and gives all of our 30,000 plus members absolute confidence that they’re investing in their health and wellbeing with the Number 1 insurer in Victoria ”, said Mildura Health Fund Chief Executive Officer, Gerard Op de Coul.

“CANSTAR is a highly regarded organisation that has established itself as one of the most trusted sources of consumer information about financial products nation-wide, for Mildura Health Fund to be recognised for providing outstanding value to our members - this is a humbling accolade”.

Josh Callaghan, General Manager, Wealth at CANSTAR “congratulated Mildura Health Fund, whose performance in its tenth Private Health Insurance Ratings is noteworthy given the size and regional nature of the Fund.”
