“It's easy to see why HCF was voted the most trusted health insurer again this year. We hear stories of uncommon care from members every day.”

UNCOMMON CARE MEANS GOING THAT EXTRA MILE
What does winning really mean? Marta, HCF member, may have won a $2,000 gift card from HCF, but it was Stavroula from the HCF Marketing team's generosity that made her month.
“It came naturally, how could I help her get access to her prize? That was it.”
When Marta was unable to activate her gift card, Stavroula decided to stop by on her way home to help. After chatting over tea and getting to know a bit about each other, Marta was able to use her prize from HCF and left feeling so grateful for Stavroula’s kindness.
“Speaking to Marta made me cry,” Stavroula said. “I just wanted to do the right thing by her."
UNCOMMON CARE AT TIMES OF DARKNESS
HCF members, Jackie and Mick, are eternally grateful that our staff picked up the phone when they had an emergency and urgently needed help.
“With HCF you get more of a personal approach. You’re not just a number.”
Once a miner, Mick lives with old injuries and new traumas. When he was admitted to hospital, HCF Customer Service Officer, Kate, was a lifeline.
“Kate helped us get through the rough stages, she truly went above and beyond,” Jackie said.
UNCOMMON CARE AT HOME
“There’s no doubt about it that it’s HCF and Billy that are giving me the independence to stay at home, completely relaxed, because they look after me. It’s great. There’s nothing to be afraid of when I’m in my home and Billy is here.”
Lucille, HCF Member
UNCOMMON CARE FROM THE SIDELINES

UNCOMMON CARE IN THE OUTBACK
A lot of purple, a little patience and a few chooks: Alice Springs nurse Sarah Brown is known to her community as ‘Napaltjarri’ – friend, partner, and leader in a remarkable venture transforming outcomes for people with chronic kidney disease.
UNCOMMON CARE FINDS ANSWERS
“I was in a lot of pain with my hip when my wife saw the HCF TV ad, so I rang to find out more about the second opinion service. We followed the specialist’s advice and although my recovery has been slow, my pain level has reduced significantly.”

UNCOMMON CARE AT UNEXPECTED TIMES
Going to the dentist with a mob of kids can be difficult at the best of times, but the team at HCF’s dental centre in Brookvale are taking the ache away.
“I’ve got five kids and it’s fairly uncommon to come to a place like this where kids are so welcome.”
“It’s so good to have a workplace where you get the freedom to play with kids while they wait, to colour-in with them on the floor,” said Dental Assistant, Jacinta. “It’s nice to keep everyone happy.”
