Value for money

We have just joined Westfund and every interaction we have had with their staff has been positive. The value for money is excellent with an increase in coverage for less premium. Show details ·  1

The best move we ever made with private health insurance was to move to Westfund

Westfund is by far the best not for profit health fund around.we were previously with another fund (NIB)that floated as a private company so we moved to Westfund and immediately saved money and received superior service.As someone who requires constant medical treatment Westfund is there to help whenever I contact them.Staff are very helpful making a stressful time much easier. Show details ·  1

Very happy

We switched to Westfund two years ago. This was the best decision we could have made. We are paying a lot less for our cover and getting more benefits that are geared to our needs. As Seniors we need to be fully covered and also watch the cost. Show details ·  1

Great service! Suitable Product

Really pleased with the service I received from Westfund the other day. I was looking to swap health insurance providers and I'd heard good things about Westfund. Called to speak with a consultant and was delighted to find that it was an Australian call centre. The consultant who answered my call helped me through the landmine that is health insurance policies and we found one that was pretty much spot-on for what I need. He was really friendly, nothing was too much trouble, and it was a super positive experience! Show details ·  1

Great value health cover

I have been with Westfund for over 2 years now, since moving across from another health group.
The service is great, the product cover is great & the fact they support the local community is even better.
A great idea to compare & switch across as great value.
Keep up the good work team. Show details ·  1

Exceptional Customer Service

I have been with Westfund for 5 years. Whenever I have an issue or need help with something I get exceptional customer service. Their staff are very friendly and knowledgeable. Also this year I got 2 bonus payments from Westfund totalling $191.00. It is great that when they are doing well they will give money back. Thank you Westfund. Show details ·  1

Excellent company with great service

I'm new to Westfund ~ 2 years ~ and based on my experience I would not hesitate to recommend them based on my experience. Went through a major surgery at a private hospital of my choice. Westfund was there for me and processed all the payments to the hospital correctly. No drama's or hidden fees. I also subscribe to the Ultimate extra's for dental and other benefits. The app is very good to follow on your smart phone. Never wait long if you call in for customer support. Westfund is non-profit and I've even received money back as a customer. Show details ·  1

A CARING COMPANY

Because I’m a distance from the Lithgow office I haven't been in person often. Going back a few years I saw another very good Optometrist who nipped my problem in the bud. So I made an appointment to see another today and he being extremely thorough helped me. I only had to pay a nominal amount for two pairs of glasses and came away a “happy Chappy” Show details ·  1

Perfectly matched my needs

I had a specific issue as well as pre-existing diagnoses and shopped around, got quotes and read reviews from various sources on each Health Insurance company (Top 10) for months. Then I stumbled onto Westfund, got a quote, spoke to the AMAZING customer service officer (Pam), several times to ensure every question I had was answered and then made the leap to sign up. Cannot recommend highly enough regarding my experience. They’re Aussie, local to me and a not for profit that gives cash backs to their customers. Very happy. They were also (surprisingly) the lowest quote! Also, their app is extremely user friendly! Show details ·  1
