Now covering more than 75,000 members of Australia’s police community, Police Health have been looking after the health and wellbeing of police officers and their families through gold-level health insurance since 1935. After a long-petitioned demand from our colleagues in emergency services, we now offer the same renowned cover to Australia’s emergency services and allied health workers and volunteer community, as well as their close relations – through Emergency Services Health. 

If you have first responder friends (nurses, paramedics, firefighters, surf life savers, state emergency responders, doctors, allied health professionals) who don’t meet Police Health’s eligibility criteria, let them know about Emergency Services Health. They can contact the team at Emergency Services Health on 1300 703 703 eshealth.com.au
