Queensland Country Health Fund was established in 1977 as the MIM Employees’ Health Society. As mining is a relatively dangerous occupation, the aim was to assist employees of the Mount Isa Mines (MIM) to protect themselves against the potential financial burden of hospital and medical costs.
In 1999, Queensland Country Health Ltd. was formed when Queensland Country Credit Union merged with MIM Employees’ Health Society, expanding their reach to benefit more people in regional Queensland.
Queensland Country Health supports a number of local community groups and events including the Townsville Picnic Bay Surf Life Saving Club, Townsville Running Festival, and several regional triathlon festivals.
They also have an exclusive dental practice for members based in Townsville, which provides a range of services at low to no gap payments for members with extras cover. Some of these services include check-ups, cleaning, and scaling.
Queensland Country Health Fund recently introduced the Territory Health Fund – a health fund which supports members living in North Queensland and the Northern Territory. Their aim is to build relationships between regional members and health service providers, which focuses primarily on needs.
