Support from CBHS for volunteer firefighters

09 January, 2020
Volunteer firefighters

Our members are at the heart of everything we do.

Today we are extending our emergency relief program – set up to help members affected by bushfires - to any members who are also volunteer firefighters.

We recognise that volunteer firefighters are making huge personal sacrifices on behalf of the wider community during this unprecedented bush fire crisis, and we want to add our support.

Members who have held Hospital or Hospital and Extras cover for 12 months or more, and who work as volunteer firefighters between November 2019 and February 2020, can apply for one month’s relief from contributions. Terms and conditions apply.

The Federal Government’s compensation scheme for volunteer firefighters has been extended to cover NSW, the ACT, Tasmania, South Australia and Queensland. All State and Territory governments are invited to apply.

We send our heartfelt thanks and appreciation to any members who are volunteering their time to help keep communities safe during this prolonged bush fire crisis.

For assistance with this emergency relief program, please call us on 1300 654 123 and have your membership details handy if possible.

What Our Members Think

I joined as a CBHS member in 1978. Through many health events and challenges CBHS has always been there for me and my family. Their exceptional service over this time has always been appreciated.

What Our Members Think

I've not long joined CBHS from another fund, but so far I've been impressed by the super helpful and friendly staff, the higher claim limits and rebates at a very competitive premium, and how easy it is to lodge manual claims through the app. Thanks CBHS - you've won me over! 😃

What Our Members Think

I have been with CBHS since I began at CBA 15 years ago...Now I have three beautiful children, one who has a disability. Our top extras cover has been really essential for his early intervention. I do love the ease of claiming online.

What Our Members Think

I am relatively new to CBHS and am loving it already. I worked for a CBA subsidiary a long time ago but was still eligible to join. So much better that the for-profit funds - our premium is only a little more and we pay a lower co-contribution and get great benefits. I am loving the massage rebate for my partner and gym rebate for me!

What Our Members Think

I'm extremely happy with CBHS! I have been a customer for about six years. I think the price is reasonable. And i would refer you to my family and friends any day. Thank you CBHS!!!

What Our Members Think

Love CBHS as I never have to doubt that they've got my back when I need it. Been through other insurers who have limited options or limits, yet cost the same or more.
