Why rt?

5 things that are great to know about us.


We're the health fund for transport and energy industry people.

Not everyone is eligible to join us but if you, or a member of your family, work in the transport or energy industries – or ever have – then you’re eligible to join.


We're a mutual not-for-profit fund.

That means we’re owned by our members. We have no reason for existing other than to provide our members with the best possible health cover at the best possible price. With us, it’s all about a better deal for members, not shareholders.


We've been looking after Australian workers since 1889.

We’ve been providing health cover to people in the transport and energy industries for more than 125 years, so we’ve had a long time to get it right.


We have a simple range of great value health covers.

We keep it simple too – no tricky fine print, no fancy footwork to trip you up. What you see is what you get. And you’ll be pleasantly surprised to see how our prices and benefits compare; it’s the type of deal you’d expect from your industry health fund.


We're here to help.

You’ve probably heard a lot of health funds trying to tell you how simple it all is – ‘Easy as 1, 2, 3’, they say. Well, guess what? It isn’t! Health insurance is complicated but it is important and never more so than the day you need to use it. We want to help you make sure that you’ve made the right decisions for yourself and your family when that day comes.

Our team is standing by to guide you step-by-step through the key decisions you need to make, they'll help you bear in mind some important considerations along the way, and give you a hand in comparing your current health cover with what rt can offer.

We look forward to welcoming you on board as a new member of rt health fund!
