We all have different health care needs, particularly as we get older.

That’s why we've partnered with Australian Unity, to help you find the right cover for your needs and budget.

We sat down with National Seniors General Manager, Chris Grice and Australian Unity Executive General Manager and CEO, Health Insurance David Brajkovic, about our new partnership and why you should make the switch.

Why did National Seniors decide to switch and partner with Australian Unity?

“We have partnered with Australian Unity because we have a shared commitment to helping older Australians enjoy later life,” Chris says. “By aligning our brands, we’re creating better health insurance for older Australians to cover their ongoing health and wellness needs.

“This is a fantastic opportunity to bring the best possible health insurance to our members.

Why should older Australians consider private health insurance?

“Private health insurance provides choice, convenience and flexibility for those who have it,” David explains. He continues: “Australian Unity is here to keep you physically and mentally healthy—and offers a range of hospital and extras covers where you can find the combination that best suits your changing needs and budget as you grow older.

“Our health insurance covers a variety of extras services that may not be covered by Medicare such as dental, optical, physiotherapy, chiropractic, remedial massage and acupuncture.”

In addition, Australia Unity’s hospital products include, subject to eligibility, a range of health support and home healthcare programs

How will this partnership benefit National Seniors members?

“We’re committed to helping our members in every way we can, and health insurance providers are no exception,” Chris says.

“We’ve always got out members top of mind. By partnering with Australian Unity Private Health Insurance, we’re able to ensure our members have the right cover for their needs and budget."

What's in it for National Seniors members?

“If you’re a National Seniors member, it’s well worth your time to have a look at what Australian Unity offers,” Chris says.

“We’ve chosen a health insurance partner who has your needs in mind, offering a range of health support programs designed to support your health and wellness needs.”

“Members also receive an ongoing 10% off their health insurance policy with Australian Unity and may not need to re-serve waiting periods when switching from another health fund.”
