Advancing Healthcare

Christmas 2011 Issue:  Supporting Informed Health Choices 


“Exciting developments at Bupa will mean significant benefits for our 3 million members.”

Richard Bowden, Managing Director, Bupa Australia

Richard BowdenFor over 60 years Bupa, through our retail brands HBA, MBF and Mutual Community, has been supporting the health of Australians. While immensely proud of our heritage, I am pleased to advise that during November our brands changed to Bupa.

This change will deliver significant benefits for our three million members. In addition to making it easier to access the range of services we provide, from October 1 our members were also able to take advantage of Australia’s largest provider network with dental, optical, physiotherapy and chiropractic services. Moreover, this move will support our ongoing work to improve efficiency and keep healthcare affordable, while enabling us to invest in new initiatives and services to help improve our members’ health.

In this edition, we look at the issue of supporting better informed health choices and showcase some of the programs and initiatives Bupa has embarked on in partnership with some of Australia’s leading health and research organisations to help empower Australians in achieving their best of health.

I am excited by the possibilities that our change to Bupa represents, particularly in our ability to broaden our healthcare services and support.

Yours sincerely,

Richard Bowden, Managing Director, Bupa Australia
