Would you rather be covered by a multinational for-profit health fund or a local not-for-profit like Phoenix Health who exist for the benefit of their members? Originally a private health fund for Australian steel workers and their families, Phoenix Health have been looking after the health of Newcastle for over 65 years. We’re now open to everyone, and you could say we’re Newcastle’s best kept secret!
