Queensland Rail Promoting BUPA

Your Union has had calls today from members advising that Queensland Rail is promoting BUPA health insurance. This is of some surprise, given the long relationship many Queensland Rail members have with rt health fund, the chosen health fund of the RTBU. rt health fund is a not-for-profit fund, owned by its members, which goes to great lengths to service members in metropolitan and regional areas of Queensland with dedicated account managers on the ground in these areas, including Far North Queensland. BUPA, on the other hand, is a multinational company that is owned by shareholders. And, in like-for-like comparisons, is generally more expensive cover than offered by rt health fund, our industry health fund.

The RTBU is a proud partner with rt health fund, and has been for many years. Your Union has negotiated an exclusive health plan to provide excellent health cover to RTBU members and their families, plus, valuable additional benefits that are only available to you as an RTBU member.

The RTBU health plan offers members:

5% discount off the price of your health cover, saving some members up to a few hundred dollars a year!
An immediate waiver for new members of all 2 & 3 month waiting periods, so you can start using your cover straight away.
$150 petrol or grocery voucher for all new members, to welcome you on board the RTBU health plan.

RTBU chose rt health fund as its exclusive health fund partner because of the fund's transport industry heritage rt health fund was started by transport industry workers more than 125 years ago, and they've been looking after workers and their families as a not-for-profit fund ever since. Plus, its covers are consistently recognised as being some of the best value available from any health fund in the country.

The RTBU has done the legwork for you, and rt health fund is our choice as a health fund partner for members. Support your industry health fund and the RTBU's own health plan.

RTBU is a key partner for rt health fund, so our members can call a dedicated RTBU member hotline for a personal consultation or to arrange for an rthealth fund consultant to visit you and your workmates in your workplace.
