HCF reward new members with flybuys partnership

20 January 2020

HCF, Australia’s largest not for profit health fund has formed an exclusive partnership that will see flybuys members rewarded for choosing Australia’s most trusted health fund. To launch the partnership, flybuys members who join with HCF will collect points based on their annual health cover premiums.

flybuys is Australia’s most popular loyalty program with more than eight and a half million active members covering two thirds of Australian households.

HCF is the country’s third largest private health insurer and grew by over 8 times the industry average over the past financial year.  In 2019, it was recognised by Roy Morgan as Australia’s most trusted fund for the second year running.

Based on a shared philosophy of putting members first, HCF and flybuys are teaming up to provide customers new and exclusive benefits. To launch the partnership, we’re offering flybuys points when flybuys members join HCF.

“Partnering with a national company that has a trusted national rewards plan that is valued by households will help HCF meet our growth aspirations” said Greg McAweeney, HCF’s Chief Officer, Business Growth.

“With HCF growing at 8 times the industry average people are switching in even greater numbers to Australia’s largest not for profit health fund. Our partnership with flybuys will further boost our national growth offering everyday Australians the opportunity to collect flybuys rewards and peace of mind with award winning health insurance cover” he said.

John Merakovsky, CEO of flybuys said “We’re delighted to have HCF join our coalition of trusted and valuable flybuys partners, and create further opportunity for our 8.6 million active members to be rewarded for their loyalty.”

“HCF is an ideal partner for flybuys; being the largest not for profit health fund, we feel the HCF value proposition will be well received by our members who seek the best value from their everyday spending, and trust flybuys to bring that to them. We look forward to a long and successful partnership with HCF.”  

As an introductory offer, customers who join HCF from Monday 20 January will collect up to 130,000 flybuys points.
