What we stand for  

Our promise to our members is to help them stay healthy, get well, live better while delivering peace of mind.

Our History

St.LukesHealth has been providing private health insurance to Australians since 1952.

As a Tasmanian not-for-profit organisation, St.LukesHealth’s focus has always been on providing our members with the best value health care based on their lifestyle and financial needs. The fund was formed by a group of Launceston businessmen who identified the need for a private health insurance fund to serve the interests of the Tasmanian community.

Since its inception, St.LukesHealth has merged with a number of other like-minded health funds from the processing and manufacturing entities such as Kelsall & Kemp, EZ Company in November 1978 and Coats Patons in May 1988. In April 1997, health fund Queenstown Medical Union joined the St.LukesHealth family.

In 1986, the fund purchased St. Luke’s Private hospital, recognised as a first-class facility with state-of-the-art day-surgery treatment rooms. In 2004, the fund sold its interest in the hospital to the Calvary Healthcare group. St.LukesHealth relationship with Calvary facilities remains strong today.

Our promise is to help our members stay healthy, get well and live better while delivering peace of mind. We do not send profits to overseas owners or pay dividends to shareholders.

St.LukesHealth has a loyal membership base across all states and territories in Australia. In 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019 we were voted number one Australia-wide for customer satisfaction by Roy Morgan Research.

A key strength of St.LukesHealth is the knowledge and depth of experience within the leadership team, with many being associated with the organisation over a long period of time. St.LukesHealth has a proven track record of meeting the needs of its policyholders, with the focus purely on providing services that deliver better health outcomes for its members.
