We're as Aussie as a Bunnings snag, mate We're 100% Australian owned and operated. When you give us a call, you're speaking to a team member sitting in one of our offices in Sydney, Newcastle and Brisbane. We like to keep things nice and simple We have a simple range of great value health covers to accommodate every budget. It's clear what you’re covered for (and how much you’ll get back when you make a claim). We don't ask you to start from the beginning When you switch to rt, you won’t lose any time you’ve built up with your previous fund (as long as you join us within two months of leaving them and take out a similar level of cover).
